What happens when a life is capsized by uncertainty? Justine Hyde leads a panel discussion with Walkley Award–winning ABC reporter Sarah Dingle and Canberra-based author Erin Stewart about their books that explore coping in the face of life-changing unknowns. In Brave New Humans, Dingle charts her ten-year journey to discover her biological origins that reveals disturbing truths about the fertility industry. Stewart blends long-form reportage with true crime in The Missing Among Us, exploring the complexities of missing person cases and the fate of those left behind.
