Local Libraries: Jacqueline MaleyThu 9 Sep, 2pm
Due to COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.
Walkley Award–winning journalist Jacqueline Maley sheds light on her striking debut novel The Truth About Her. Electrifying, compulsive and tender, it’s the story of a single mother and reporter whose career unravels in the wake of her exposé of a fraudulent wellness guru that ends in tragedy, and a workplace affair. Hear from Maley as she discusses her ‘intelligent, compelling, nuanced tale of guilt, culpability, pride, shame and atonement’ (Annabel Crabb) and the nature of stories—who owns them, who gets to tell them, and why we need them. With Maddison Connaughton.
Maddison Connaughton is a journalist, editor and inaugural Walkley Our Watch fellow. She was previously the editor of The Saturday Paper and, before that, the features editor at Vice, where she was a two-time finalist for the Walkley Young Australian Journalist of the Year.
Jacqueline Maley is an award-winning journalist and columnist with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. The Truth About Her is her first novel.
