On Care

Robert Manne underwent life-changing throat surgery and his wife, writer Anne Manne, is providing care, at the same time as looking after her mother in Bendigo, now in her 90s.

This has given them new insights about not just disability and care but also about how such experiences can be written about. They share the stage with friend and colleague, Rachel Robertson, who wrote a wonderful memoir about caring for her autistic son.

This is a La Trobe University Ideas and Society event.
