Join one of Australia’s most accomplished and admired journalists, Leigh Sales, live in Melbourne as she discusses her new book Storytellers.

Leigh Sales is one of Australia’s most beloved journalists. A veteran anchor of the ABC’s flagship current affairs program 7.30, the new presenter of Australian Story, co-host of hugely popular podcast Chat 10 Looks 3 with Annabel Crabb, and a bestselling author, Sales has been recognised with three Walkley Awards over the course of a career that has seen her interview countless political leaders, innovators and artists.

In her new book, Storytellers: Questions, Answers and the Craft of Journalism, Sales turns her talents on her remarkable peers – including Waleed Aly, Richard Fidler, Niki Savva and Stan Grant – revealing candid insights into the craft of journalism and the power of storytelling.

At this exclusive Spring Fling event in conversation with ABC producer Elias Clure, Sales will share insights from her career in the media and offer a peek behind the curtain of this vital but often misunderstood profession.
