October 18: The Children’s House
Alice Nelson … in conversation with Bill Kable

In the story of this novel we travel from Rwanda to the kibbutzim of Israel and finally to New York. But there is more behind the story and Alice Nelson tells us about that today when we discuss The Children’s House. We find out about the main characters and there is a very topical reference to asylum seekers and refugees of which Alice has direct experience. This is a love song to families in all their mysteries and complexities their different configurations and the hope that creates them.


October 25: Farm Progression Planning – Mental Health Month
Owen Catto … in conversation with Bill Kable

Warriors at education sessions? Yes these are our men in the regional areas of Australia who are battling one of the worst droughts on record as well as the usual pressures. Owen Catto has worked for the last 10 years in the area of men’s holistic health and wellbeing. His services have been sought in recent times because of the particular difficulties in progression planning for the family business. Owen empowers men to move forward and embrace changes. This responsibility has never been greater.
