New Book Release – The Long Weekend

Four perfect strangers. Three days. Can one weekend away change your life? The unputdownable new drama by one of Australia’s most beloved storytellers

Coming together for a writing workshop with bestselling author Jan Goldstein, four strangers converge upon a luxury forest retreat. But along with their notepads and laptops, each of the participants has brought some emotional baggage.

Beth is a solo parent and busy career woman haunted by a tragic car accident. Simone, the youngest at 26, is a successful Instagram star but she’s hiding behind a facade. Jamie is the only man. He’s a handsome personal trainer – but he looks out of place with a pen in his hand. Finally, Alice is a wife and mum recovering from post-natal depression. She and Jamie soon realise they are not such perfect strangers after all.

Only one thing is for sure: on this creative getaway, nothing will go according to script.

A Podcast To Check Out – Life’s Lottery

Cycles of disadvantage are numerous, complex and greater than the sum of their parts. This podcast is about big ideas and novel approaches to breaking them. 

Is social mobility still possible? How can massive, global systems be changed? How can we prevent people from coming into contact with the criminal justice system? In conversation with public policy experts, thought-leaders, and people experiencing disadvantage, Life’s Lottery delves into the latest research and new programs that are achieving meaningful and lasting change.

Join hosts Glyn Davis and Jeni Whalan from the Paul Ramsay Foundation in this five part series that seeks new information, data and ways of thinking about the complexities of disadvantage that persist across generations.
