By popular demand, Books & Ideas has moved to Friday evening. Join two of Australia’s most accomplished and admired journalists, Leigh Sales and Lisa Millar, for dinner as they discuss the craft of journalism beyond the headlines.
Leigh Sales is one of Australia’s most beloved journalists. A veteran anchor of the ABC’s flagship current affairs program 7.30, co-host of hugely popular podcast Chat 10 Looks 3, and bestselling author, Sales has also been recognised with three Walkleys for a career that’s seen her interview countless political leaders, innovators and artists.
In her new book, Storytellers, Sales turns her talents on some of her peers – including Waleed Aly, Annabel Crabb, Richard Fidler and Niki Savva – revealing their candid insights into the craft of journalism and the power of storytelling.
Over an intimate dinner at Montalto, Sales will be joined by former colleague and close friend Lisa Millar, co-host of ABC News Breakfast, to discuss her latest work and unpack the mysteries of this vital but often misunderstood profession.
