Kate Legge in conversation with Susan Wyndham

One cannot fail to be entranced by Legge’s bone-deep strength and wisdom. — Annabel Crabb

Unflinchingly investigating the value of monogamy and the true cost of betrayal. — Trent Dalton

What Lisa Taddeo did for female desire, journalist Kate Legge does for adultery in her new memoir, Infidelity and Other Affairs (February 2023, Thames & Hudson). Throughout this searing book, she confronts with clear head and inspiring tenacity the infidelity of her former high-profile partner, Greg Hywood, the CEO of Fairfax Media from 2010 to 2018. Discovering that betrayal has been a recurring pattern in his family going back generations, she wonders: is unfaithfulness a predisposition or a learned behaviour?

Join Legge at The Royal Oak Balmain on Thursday 2 March for what will be a remarkable and candid conversation with Susan Wyndham, a former literary editor of The Sydney Morning Herald, as well as Kate’s long-time personal friend.

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 most loved pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

Infidelity and Other Affairs will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Legge 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.
