Join one of Australia’s most popular broadcasters Indira Naidoo for an exclusive book talk to discuss her newest release The Space Between the Stars. The book talk is held right by Indira’s beloved fig tree that overlooks our beautiful Sydney Harbour and is featured in the book.

“For as long as I can remember, there has always been just the three of us. Three sisters. Only a year between each. Inseparable. It's been like that for almost 50 years … Until my youngest sister walked out into her suburban backyard and took her life.”

After her younger sister died suddenly, broadcaster Indira Naidoo's world was shattered. Turning to her urban landscape for solace, Indira found herself drawn to a fig tree overlooking Sydney harbour. A connection began to build between the two - one with a fractured heart, the other a centurion offering quiet companionship while asking nothing in return.

The Space Between the Stars is a heart-rending, at times funny, and uplifting tribute to love and our innate need to connect to the natural world, a celebration of the reassuring cycle of renewal that sustains and nourishes us all.

The event will start at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney’s Visitor Centre where you will have a chance to purchase Indira’s book before being guided to the fig tree to meet Indira. Seating will be provided and at the end of the talk, you will have an opportunity to ask questions and get your copy signed by Indira.
