About The Event

The Royal Oak Balmain - 36 College St
Balmain, NSW 2041 Australia
Thursday, November 10, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Heather Rose in conversation with Kate Evans

‘Funny, devastating, miraculous, and delightful. This is an extraordinary life story, extraordinarily told.’ — Bri Lee

‘[Rose] takes us to the edge of a volcanic crater of grief, passion and spirituality. Dazzling and devastating.’ — Tim Rogers

From the multi-award-winning author of Bruny and The Museum of Modern Love comes a deeply personal collection filled with reflections on love, death, creativity and healing.

On Thursday 10 November, join Heather Rose in conversation on her memoir with ABC Radio National’s The Bookshelf co-presenter, Kate Evans.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain’s oldest and best-known pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

Nothing Bad Ever Happens Here will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Rose following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
