Live Book Event: Heather Morris, Author of Stories of Hope
International bestselling author Heather Morris will be joining us LIVE to discuss her new novel, Stories of Hope. Heather will also be taking questions.

Born in New Zealand, Heather Morris is an international number one bestselling author. In 2003 Heather was introduced to an elderly gentleman who ‘might just have a story worth telling’. The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives, as their friendship grew and he embarked on a journey of self-scrutiny, entrusting the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust to her. Heather originally wrote Lale’s story as a screenplay – which ranked high in international competitions – before reshaping it into her debut novel, The Tattooist of Auschwitz.

Now you get to hear from Heather and ask her questions.

Join Heather for this LIVE event:

Wednesday, December 9th, 2020 at 8 PM – 8:30 PM AEDT… on the Better Reading Facebook page.

    Synopsis

    Heather Morris, author of the internationally bestselling novels The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka's Journey, grew up on a farm in rural New Zealand. On her way back across the paddocks from school, Heather would visit her great-grandfather and listen to his experiences of war - stories he told only Heather. From a young age, Heather discovered that people would tell her their stories if she stopped and listened. In Stories of Hope, Heather Morris will explore the art of listening - a skill she employed when she met Lale Sokolov, the Tattooist of Auschwitz. It was her ability to listen that led him to entrust her with his story. Stories of Hope will examine Heather's extraordinary journey, in the form of a series of beautifully rendered tales of the people she has met, the remarkable stories they have shared with her, and the lessons they hold for us all.
