Tuesday, 7 August 2018 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Join award-winning journalist and author Jill Stark she discusses her newest release Happy Never After.

We're all looking for answers. We all want the happy ever after. What would happen if we stopped chasing, stayed still, and found calm amid the chaos?

Jill Stark thought she’d found contentment with a coveted journalism career, dating a sports star and debut best-selling book High Sobriety.

But then it all started to go wrong and left her struggling with acute anxiety and falling into a deep depression. The experience forced her to ask if we've been sold a lie. Could the relentless pursuit of happiness actually be making us miserable? Why, in a western world with more opportunity, choice and wealth than ever before, are so many of us depressed, anxious and medicated?

In this forensic examination of our age of anxiety, Jill explores how we can unplug, keep calm, and find meaning in a frenetic world designed to drive us mad. With humour, insight, and razor-sharp wit, she tells of her own struggles with a lifetime of anxiety against the backdrop of a stressed-out modern world.

Books will be available for purchase on the night.
