Meet the Author Lee Kofman with IMperfect; How our bodies shape the people we become | Waverley Library | Thursday, 24. October 2019

By the time she was eleven, Lee Kofman had undergone several major operations on both a defective heart and injuries sustained in a bus accident. Her body harbours a constellation of disfiguring scars that have shaped her sense of self and her view of the world.
In a captivating mix of memoir and cultural critique, Kofman casts a questioning eye on the myths surrounding our conception of physical perfection and what it’s like to live in a body that deviates from the norm. Illuminating, confronting and deeply personal, IMperfect challenges us all to consider how we exist in the world and how our bodies shape the people we become.
Appearing at this years Sydney Writer's Festival, Sydney Jewish Writer's festival and last years Melbourne Writer's festival. Lee's IMperfect has had a stellar year and is event not to be missed.
