Presented in association with Fremantle Arts Centre

Author and journalist Lisa Taddeo led us deep into the real lives and defining desires of three women in her non-fiction best seller. This was a work of such astonishing reportage it made her an international literary phenomenon. 

Animal, written in part while Lisa was researching Three Women, is her first novel, a visceral and ferociously beautiful depiction of female rage and revenge. It follows the story of Joan, a woman undergoing a transformation from prey to predator, driven to kill by the violence of her past. Lisa will join us via live stream from the USA to share stories of immersive journalism and the inspiration around her powerful new book.  

Lisa is appearing via live stream at the event.
