The Wild and Precious Tour

Sarah Wilson, one of Australia’s most celebrated and recognised authors, is embarking on a bookclub-style “Big Conversation” tour across Australia. The New York Times bestselling author of I Quit Sugar and First, We Make The Beast Beautiful will talk in conversation about her latest book release, This One Wild and Precious Life.

The Wild and Precious Tour will be presented as an Australia-wide “bookclub”, a fun, wild deep dive into the clusterf*ck of issues we are struggling to live with and talk about –the state of our planet, Covid19, our disconnection from each other. Sarah will bring in themes covered in her new book, drawing on real-life solutions, science, hiking, philosophy and spirituality to nurture that Big Conversation we are all craving.“I spent three years talking with experts around the world to find a vibrant, hopeful path forward,” she says. “Now I want to have that chat with readers.”In an original format, Sarah will take the tour to regional towns, as well as the capital cities, conducting hikes in these areas with participants. She will be working to promote and support these areas as wild and precious destinations.
