An Evening with Nikki Gemmell @ Balmain Town Hall
Wed. 29 March 2017, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT
Join internationally acclaimed writer Nikki Gemmell to hear about her new book After—a uniquely personal perspective on the myriad of issues around the highly contentious subject of a euthanasia death.
In After Nikki questions her mother’s actions and asks if they should be celebrated as an act of empowerment and control, or condemned for the emotional havoc they wreaked across her stunned family.
A blazingly beautiful, profound and unflinchingly honest book.
