The author of the beloved global bestseller joins us to make an impassioned plea for the power of stories to remind us that hope is always possible.
Heather Morris grew up on a farm in rural New Zealand. On her way back across the paddocks from school, Heather would visit her great-grandfather and listen to his experiences of war – stories he told only Heather. From a young age Heather discovered that people would tell her their stories if she stopped and listened.
In conversation with broadcaster and journalist Hannah MacInnes, Heather Morris will explore the art of listening – a skill she employed when she met Lale Sokolov, the Tattooist of Auschwitz. It was her ability to listen that led him to entrust her with his story. Heather will tell us about the people she has met, the remarkable stories they have shared with her, and the lessons they hold for us all.
This event takes place at 8:30pm BST.
