Heather Morris in Conversation with Claire Halliday

Join internationally bestselling author Heather Morris, talking about her new non-fiction title, Stories of Hope, and the art of listening.

This special event offers an insight into Heather’s writing processes – and the value of listening to and remembering the stories that live within all of us. 

Heather is in conversation with Claire Halliday, author of Things My Mother Taught Me and Things My Father Taught Me. 

Thursday 26 November 

7.30pm-8.30pm.
