Join Jamila Rizvi and Clare Bowditch for an afternoon of honest conversation and song, exploring resilience and what happens after the worst day of your life, with journalist and author Leigh Sales.
The day that turns a life upside down usually starts like any other, but what happens the day after? In her new book Any Ordinary Day, which is breaking sales records all over the place, Leigh Sales set out to understand how ordinary people endure the unthinkable.
As host of ABC’s 730, Leigh often encounters people experiencing the worst moments of their lives in the full glare of the media. But one particular string of bad news stories – and a terrifying brush with her own mortality – sent her looking for answers about how vulnerable each of us is to a life-changing event.
What are our chances of actually experiencing one? What do we fear most and why? And when the worst does happen, what comes next? How do we keep going? How do we survive the impossible?
In this very special Tea with Jam and Clare event, our hosts and guest will explore themes of grief, blindsides, recovery, shock and how to come back from the hardest possible moments of being human. Clare, Jamila, Leigh each promise to bring the best of themselves for this poignant and moving event that promises to be truly unforgettable. There will be personal truths laid bare, difficult questions posed and stories of love, light and hope offered up. Plus, Clare will bring the music with songs to help us rebuild ourselves and others.
Tea with Jam and Clare will be at Malvern Town Hall on Sunday February 3, where the seats will be cosy, the tea will be sweet and the room warm and welcoming.
