Enjoy a 2 Course Menu with Libby Trickett!

The brave and inspiring memoir of one of Australian Swimming's Golden Girls, whose extraordinary achievements masked battles with anxiety and depression.

Australians know Libby Trickett as one of our golden girls of swimming. Winner of multiple Olympic gold medals and setter of world records, Libby wasn't just a champion, she was Australia's girl next door, the humble superstar from suburban Brisbane with the infectious grin and sunny nature. Yet what we saw on the surface - the confidence, competitiveness and warmth that were her hallmarks - belied the very private battles she fought in her own head. Beneath the incredible achievements and that trademark smile, Libby suffered from crippling depression.

During her swimming career she managed to keep her demons more or less at bay, but when an injury forced her to retire in 2013 Libby was suddenly thrust into an unfamiliar world. With few, if any, qualifications to handle it, her self-doubts began to overwhelm her. The birth of her first baby added further complications to her fragile mental health, and she suffered intense postnatal depression. When she finally recognised the depression for what it was, and sought help for it, it was a major turning point in her life.

Books will be available to purchase and be signed on the night.

The Accidental Tour Guide is the latest instalment in Mary Moody’s inspirational journey to find her place in the world after the heartbreaking loss of her husband of 42 years to cancer. With her trademark determination, Mary carves out a new life for herself as a single older woman who inspires others to follow their dreams. In the tradition of Eat Pray Love and Salvation Creek, it's a powerful new memoir from a woman who has openly and honestly pushed the boundaries on all that life has to offer. The book opens with the death of Mary’s beloved husband, David. The grief from this loss galvanises Mary to reinvent herself, combining her love of travel with her passion for gardening. It is the story of breaking new frontiers in the true sense of the word. After her first extraordinary trek into the wildflower meadows of the Himalayas, Mary is inspired to lead others through unchartered territories in Morocco, to upmarket European and English gardens, and right to the foot of Mount Everest and historic Nepal.

Now in her late sixties, Mary Moody is determined to grow old outrageously. She has no intention of 'going gently into that good night' and is passionately committed to continue leading walking tours along roads less travelled,as long as her legs will carry her. Mary Moody shot to fame as a presenter on ABC TV’s Gardening Australia. However, it was her frank and honest disclosure in two previous memoirs and on national television of an affair with a Frenchman, and then subsequent reconciliation with her husband, that caught the broader attention of the nation and endeared her to so many along the way. She inspired thousands of women with her bestselling memoirs Au Revoir and Last Tango in Toulouse. A journalist,popular TV and radio presenter,she lives in the Blue Mountains.
