A Sense of Wonder

Sat 10 Sep, 3pm

How can nature be a source of light and healing in our darkest hours? Few Australian authors have written so personally and profoundly on this essential theme as Julia Baird (Phosphorescence) and Indira Naidoo (The Space Between the Stars). They speak with Eliza Henry-Jones about how, in the wake of illness and grief in their own lives, they found restoration in the magic, beauty and wonder of the natural world, and the paths they each took to put their stories on the page in richly rendered works of nonfiction.
