Danielle Laidley in conversation

Readings Hawthorn — Woiworung Country, 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122

Please note: this event has had a date change.

We are thrilled to have former elite footballer and senior AFL coach Danielle Laidley with us talking about her memoir, Don’t Look Away: A memoir of identity & acceptance.

Don’t Look Away is an unflinching account of what it’s like to know you don’t fit the body you were born into, and the desperate measures taken to mask the fear of being outed, of losing those you love. It’s also an uncensored behind-the-scenes look at elite football from the perspective of player and coach, where Danielle is both participant in and analytical observer of her double life.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.

Please book here.


We are committed to providing a safe environment for our staff and customers. Ahead of the event, please visit our shop pages to find our most recent conditions of entry. As your visit will be for an extended period of time, we encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated.
