Kate Holden's stories have captured the beauty and the ugliness of humanity, close to and far from home. Her two bestselling books (In My Skin: A Memoir and The Romantic: Italian Nights and Days) capture the realities of heroin use, sex work and homelessness and the challenges of modern love.
Kate is also a popular columnist for The Age and has published essays, short stories and literary criticism. Having spent time in Rome, Shanghai and London, she now lives in Melbourne and teaches creative writing at RMIT.
So which films would this celebrated writer, columnist and world traveller take to her desert island?
This event will be hosted by Thomas Caldwell - film critic, writer and broadcaster who has worked with organisations like Triple R, JoyFM, The Big Issue, Overland and Senses of Cinema.
