Magda Szubanski book signing at Avid Reader Bookstore, Brisbane

Come and meet Magda Szubanski as the much loved performer visits Avid Reader Bookstore in West End, Brisbane, to sign copies of her extraordinary new memoir, Reckoning.

Heartbreaking, joyous, traumatic, intimate and revelatory, Reckoning is the book where Magda Szubanski tells her story—from a suburban childhood, haunted by the demons of her father’s espionage activities in wartime Poland and by her secret awareness of her sexuality, to the complex dramas of adulthood and her need to find out the truth about herself and her family. With courage and compassion she addresses her own frailties and fears, and asks the big questions about life, about the shadows we inherit and the gifts we pass on.

Honest, poignant, utterly captivating, Reckoning announces the arrival of a fearless writer and natural storyteller.

Magda Szubanski began her career in university revues, then appeared in a number of sketch comedy shows before creating the iconic character of Sharon Strzelecki in ABC-TV’s Kath and Kim. She has also acted in films (Babe, Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet, The Golden Compass) and stage shows.
