Four Seasons Hotel
Four Seasons Hotel; 199 George Street, Sydney NSW 2000 Australia
We are delighted to re-schedule our event with  Julia Baird. Her book Phosphorescence was released as Coronavirus took hold in March of this year. The subject matter resonated with many readers. Julia describes how we can find and nurture, within ourselves, that essential quality of strength and joy, which will sustain us even through the darkest of times. Her book has been number one on the non -fiction bestseller list since it was released.
 
In Phosphorescence Julia speaks to forest therapists in Japan, jellyfish scientists in Tasmania, sound-trackers in America, Indigenous elders in Arnhem Land, storm chasers,
street artists and poets, billionaire bankers in New York and priests in Colorado. And, completing her quest for phosphorescence, she eventually finds it in pitch-black seas in the bay at the foot of the hill she lives on.

Parmelia Hilton
Parmelia Hilton; 14 Mill Street, Perth WA 6000 Australia
All Our Shimmering Skies is a story about gifts that fall from the sky, curses we dig from the earth and the secrets we bury inside ourselves. It is an odyssey of true love and grave danger, of darkness and light, of bones and blue skies. It is a buoyant, beautiful and magical novel, abrim with warmth, wit and wonder, a love letter to Australia and the art of looking up.

A Particular Woman is one woman’s journey, through the highs and lows of life and tells how resilience helped her find success and peace. At a young age, Ashley left her career to follow her husband to the Far East and Argentina. When the marriage broke down, she was left with an adopted boy and a baby in arms. A chance meeting at the school gate helped with the bills, catapulting Ashley into modeling. Then Ashley met the love of her life, John Dawson-Damer. John, who owned what was billed as the world’s finest collection of Lotus racing cars, sadly died in a crash at an English racetrack. Ashley embarked on an astonishing late life career fuelled by her love of art. Currently a trustee of the Art Gallery of NSW, she has been on numerous boards including the Festival of Sydney and the National Institute of Dramatic Arts. Ashley is one of Sydney’s leading philanthropists and her story is compelling reading.

David McAllister has always belonged on stage. Fifty years since he stepped into his first ballet class, McAllister reflects on his dance journey, his relationships, embracing his sexuality and the combination of talent, timing and sheer perseverance that gave rise to his transformative career. Soar – A Life Freed by Dance is his inspiring story. David joined The Australian Ballet in 1983 and was promoted to principal artist in 1989. He danced many principal roles and made numerous guest appearances worldwide. In 2001 he took his final bow as a dancer and became artistic director of The Australian Ballet. This year he steps down from that role to take on freelance staging and choreographing ballets. From the backblocks of Perth to international stardom, Soar – A Life Freed by Dance is a story of courage to fight for your passion, against the odds, and succeed.
