One cannot fail to be entranced by Legge’s bone-deep strength and wisdom. — Annabel Crabb

Unflinchingly investigating the value of monogamy and the true cost of betrayal. — Trent Dalton

What Lisa Taddeo did for female desire, journalist Kate Legge does for adultery in her new memoir, Infidelity and Other Affairs (February 2023, Thames & Hudson). Throughout this searing book, she confronts with clear head and inspiring tenacity the infidelity of her former high-profile partner, Greg Hywood, the CEO of Fairfax Media from 2010 to 2018. Discovering that betrayal has been a recurring pattern in his family going back generations, she wonders: is unfaithfulness a predisposition or a learned behaviour?

Join Legge at The Royal Oak Balmain on Thursday 2 March for what will be a remarkable and candid conversation with Susan Wyndham, a former literary editor of The Sydney Morning Herald, as well as Kate’s long-time personal friend.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain's oldest and most loved pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

_Infidelity and Other Affairs _will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Legge following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
