Join award-winning journalist Kate Legge for lunch at Montalto as she explores the complex topic of infidelity.




 







 

Kate Legge is an award-winning journalist who has covered political and social affairs for 40 years. Her novel The Unexpected Elements of Love was listed for the Miles Franklin Award and her non-fiction book, Kindred - A Cradle Mountain Love Story was a finalist in the Queensland Literary Awards.

In her latest work of non-fiction, renowned journalist and author Kate Legge turns her attention to the oft-taboo topic of infidelity. Drawing from her own experiences, Legge’s Infidelity and Other Affairs critically examines the concept of lifelong monogamy and explores whether the urge to be unfaithful can be considered a hereditary trait.

This June, we welcome the Wheeler Centre to Montalto for an intimate lunch and thought-provoking conversation between Legge and Melbourne-based radio producer and presenter, Elizabeth McCarthy. Together they will unpack Legge’s latest work, reflecting on the process of bringing personal experiences to the page, and the complexities of modern relationships and inherited histories.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to engage with one of Australia's most respected journalists on a topic that is rarely discussed in public forums.
