Benjamin Gilmour: The Gap

hero

Byron Writers Festival invites you to Benjamin Gilmour: The Gap, a free in conversation event about his riveting memoir that exposes the fragility of our lives and the lengths that paramedics will go to try to save us.

Benjamin Gilmour has been a paramedic for the past twenty years. He has seen his fair share of drama. But the summer of 2008 remains etched in his memory for the very worst reasons.

The Gap is a vivid portrait of the lead-up to Christmas; an unflinching, no-holds-barred look at what happens after the triple-zero call is made – the drugs, nightclubs, brothels, drunk rich kids, billionaires, domestic disputes, the elderly, emergency births, even a kidnapping. Patients share their innermost feelings, and we witness their loneliness, their despair and their hopes. The Gap exposes the fragility of our lives and the lengths the paramedics will go to to try to save us.

Benjamin Gilmore will be in conversation with Genevieve Yates at The Book Room.

FREE, bookings essential
