Join Heather Morris, author of international bestselling novels, The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka’s Journey as she talks about her non-fiction debut Stories of Hope.
**The first 100 people to register for the event with the ‘with book’ option will receive a signed copy of Stories of Hope**
In Stories of Hope, Heather Morris explores the art of listening – a skill she employed when she first met Lale Sokolov, the Tattooist at Auschwitz. It was her ability to listen that led Lale to entrust Heather with his story, which she told as the novel The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Now she shares her story of how she learned to listen.
Heather grew up on a farm in rural New Zealand. On her way back across the paddocks from school, she would visit her great-grandfather and listen to his experiences of war – stories he told only Heather. From a very young age, she learned that people would share their most sacred and intimate stories with her, if she stopped and listened to them.
Stories of Hope examines and explores Heather’s journey, in the form of a series of tales of the remarkable people she has met, the extraordinary stories they have shared with her, and the lessons they hold for us all.
