5.15pm Tracy King talks about her book Learn to think

We will be joined by Author Tracy King who will be discussing her first book ‘Learn to Think’ followed by a signing, where you get to meet the author and purchase a signed copy of her book.

This isn’t the stuff of cult documentaries; this is the story of an ordinary family trapped in a broken system. It’s a story that could happen to anyone without the tools to transform their circumstances. And it’s the story of how Tracy found her way out.
A shocking, inspiring and ultimately hopeful memoir that holds up a mirror to the everyday realities of living in poverty, it is also a testament to the power of books and to learning to question our world.

6pm Wine and Cheese social with access to the wellbeing stalls
