23 year old Belle Gibson claimed to have cured herself of terminal brain cancer through her healthy diet and built a successful global business based on these claims. The truth was that Belle Gibson never actually had cancer. She had lied to her family, her friends and thousands of Facebook followers, including many genuine cancer patients. In 2015, two journalists revealed her deception.

Nick Toscano and Beau Donelly have written a book based on their investigation into Belle Gibson's cancer fraud. In it, they explore not only what happens in Belle Gibson's case, but alternative cancer treatments and the popularity of the "wellness" movement that allows unscrupulous operators to prey on people's desperation.

Join Bri Lee in conversation with these two multi-award winning journalists for the book's official launch at Avid Reader Bookshop in West End on Monday 13 November 2017, from 6- 8pm.

Tickets are $10.00.

Tickets will be available until November 13 at 6pm.
