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.

Mary Li (neé McKendry) shares a lifetime of ballet and is a mother like no other. 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 an unforgettable night as Mary Li discusses her new book, joined by daughter Sophie and husband, Li Cunxin.

Mary Li will be in conversation with ABC’s Rebecca Levingston.
