Leigh Sales on 'Any Ordinary Day'
What do we fear most and why? When the worst does happen, what comes next?
The City of Perth Library, UWA Institute of Advanced Studies and Boffins Books, are delighted to present Leigh Sales on Any Ordinary Day.
About Any Ordinary DayIn Any Ordinary Day, journalist Leigh Sales talks with people who’ve faced the unimaginable, from terrorism to natural disaster to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Expecting broken lives, she finds strength, hope and even humour. Leigh brilliantly condenses cutting-edge research on the way the human brain processes fear and grief, and poses questions we too often ignore. Along the way, she offers an unguarded account of her own challenges and what she’s learned about coping with life’s unexpected blows.
