Love Language Book Launch – Linda Marigliano in Conversation with Benjamin Law
- 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm | Tuesday May 30, 2023
- Brick | Ace Hotel Sydney
- 47-53 Wentworth Ave
A night of conversation with Australian radio presenter and podcaster Linda Marigliano – on the eve of her first book’s publication – and Australian author, journalist and friend Benjamin Law. Linda and Ben discuss Linda’s memoir Love Language, a compelling, relatable and powerfully moving memoir of people-pleasing, family and what it means to love and be loved.
Linda has built a career out of performing for other people. In her day-job as an on-air presenter or in her family home, she contorted herself into ‘the cool girl’ or ‘the good girl’, and struggled to ever truly switch off. As she repeatedly over-committed and sought approval in all its guises, she started to ask herself: Why am I like this? Combing through her complex relationship with her mother, the sense of duty within her extended Italian and Chinese-Malaysian families, and the twisting turns of both her career path and her love life, Linda asks herself why her love language had warped into acts of service that pleased everyone but herself, without boundaries or exceptions. Love Language is Linda’s determined reclamation of her identity; a fiercely relatable and viscerally honest account of what it means to love and be loved.
