Lisa Millar: Daring to Fly
Former foreign correspondent and ABC News Breakfast host Lisa Millar talks about Daring to Fly, her account of conquering trauma and fear, with her friend ABC 7.30’s Leigh Sales.
Following the extension of Melbourne’s lockdown, and with the safety of staff, artists and audiences front of mind, Melbourne Writers Festival has made the difficult decision to cancel its live events as part of this year’s program, planned to be delivered from Friday 3 to Sunday 12 September.
All tickets to in-person events will automatically be refunded in full, and anyone who wishes to donate the value of their ticket or make a tax-deductible donation to support MWF is welcome to do so.
Working as a foreign correspondent gave Lisa Millar the big life she dreamt of growing up in country Queensland. But years of witnessing grief and unspeakable tragedy came at a cost: an ever-escalating fear of flying that threatened to derail her career. Join the ABC News Breakfast host for an intimate discussion with her long-time friend ABC 7.30’s Leigh Sales about Daring to Fly, her account of processing trauma, conquering fear, and learning to report on horror while still holding on to joy.
This event will be Auslan interpreted.
Presented in partnership with RMIT University – Learning Partner for Melbourne Writers Festival.
