Want to go to the Sydney Writers Festival without leaving Hobart? You can!

TAF2019 is teaming up with the State Bookstore to bring you the Leigh Sales SWF Live & Local session at State Cinema. A second session, featuring Clementine Ford, Adam Liaw and Jan Fran, is also available on Friday morning.

Join us in the Screening Room as we beam live to the Carriageworks in Sydney. In Hobart, your session will be hosted by Chris Gallagher, former director of the Hobart Writers Festival.

Tickets just $15 (no concession).


In Any Ordinary Day, ABC 7.30’s anchor Leigh Sales investigates how ordinary people endure the unthinkable.

Her widely acclaimed book weaves together stories of those who have survived everything from natural disasters to terrorism – and even Leigh’s own brush with mortality – in an exploration of how people move forward from hardship not just with shock and sadness, but strength, hope and even humour.

Join Leigh – a Walkley Award winner and co-host of the Chat 10 Looks 3 podcast – at this special event about her warm, wise and layered book.
