Mary Li – Mary’s Last Dance
Mary Li, international ballet star and author of the highly anticipated memoir, Mary’s Last Dance comes to Brisbane Powerhouse as part of Writers +Ideas series on Tuesday November 10.
Mary Li (neé McKendry) has a rich story to share – from her tales of being a world-class ballerina to her role as a mother. She became a household name when her husband Li Cunxin published his bestselling memoir, Mao’s Last Dancer – but that book told only half the story. Mary’s Last Dance is a powerful and uplifting memoir about chasing an impossible dream and sacrificing one’s own ambition for the love of a child. It is a moving and unforgettable story of passion, dedication and devotion.
Don’t miss a truly special night as Mary Li discusses her new book with ABC’s Rebecca Levingston. Making it a family affair not to be missed, Mary will be joined by daughter Sophie and husband, Li Cunxin.
Make haste to the Brisbane Powerhouse website to secure your tickets.
