The B List with Bri Lee & Rebecca Giggs
Join us online for The B List book club hosted by Bri Lee.
Each month Bri is in conversation with a contemporary author followed by a Q&A session.
Bri will be joined by Rebecca Giggs to discuss her debut book, Fathoms: The World in the Whale. Described as a gorgeous meditation on the awe-inspiring lives of whales, the book reveals what whales can teach us about ourselves, our planet and our connection to other species. Rebecca outlines the challenges we face as we attempt to understand the perspectives of other living beings, and our own place on an evolving planet. Evocative and inspiring, Fathoms marks the arrival of an essential new voice.
Rebecca Giggs is an author and essayist. Her first book is Fathoms: The World in the Whale.
Rebecca’s non-fiction essays have been shortlisted for the Australian Book Review Calibre Prize and the Woollahra Digital Literary Award; a number of these works are currently taught in universities around Australia. Her writing has been translated into Korean, Spanish, Finnish and Norwegian. Rebecca has been a recipient of writing fellowships hosted by organisations including the Rachel Carson Centre for Environment and Society (Munich); the Mick Dark Residency at Varuna, the National Writing House (New South Wales); and the AsiaLink Foundation (Tokyo and Kyoto).
