Trent Dalton in conversation with Julia Baird


Goodness it has been one strange year! But now it is time to remember that love can help, that love changes perceptions and love will bring this year to an end.

We are thrilled to invite you to overhear two amazing authors and friends talk about the importance of love stories in our everyday life. Dalton’s new book Love Stories wasinspired by a personal moment of profound love and generosity, and resulted in Trent Dalton spending two months in 2021 pounding city pavements, speaking to Australians from all walks of life and asking them one simple and direct question: ‘Can you please tell me a love story?’

Together Trent and Julia, journalist and author of Phosphorescence, will discuss their work.

Warning: this event could change your life. Join us.
