Maggie Nelson’s wonderfully unclassifiable The Argonauts confirmed her status as one of the most intellectually fascinating writers of our time. Exploring love, motherhood, and queer family-making, she blended memoir, humour and literary analysis into a bestselling examination of personal liberty. Her eagerly welcomed follow-up, On Freedom, carries the theme further, exploring the concept of freedom in four distinct spheres: art, sex, drugs, and climate. The author of nine other poetry and prose works, Nelson is one of the most influential writers working today.

Appearing live via video from Los Angeles, she sheds light on an invigorating and essential book for challenging times, in conversation with on-stage interviewer Rebecca Harkins-Cross.
