About The Event

The Royal Oak Balmain - 36 College St
Balmain, NSW 2041 Australia
Tuesday, August 1, 2023
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Lucinda Holdforth in conversation with Charlotte Wood

Authenticity. Vulnerability. Humility. Transparency. Are Australia’s newest virtues fit for purpose?

In her provocative book, 21st Century Virtues, speechwriter and author Lucinda Holdforth questions the current orthodoxy. Join her on Tuesday 1 August at The Royal Oak as she presents her argument to one of Australia’s most recognised and acclaimed authors (and a regular host with Roaring Stories author events!), Charlotte Wood.

Copies of 21st Century Virtues will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with Holdfirth signing copies after the discussion.

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 ordering 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.

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.
