Sunshine Coast Libraries presents inspirational bushfire survivor Turia Pitt. You are invited to hear Turia speak about her new book release Unmasked. Special guest MC is acclaimed Australian editor, journalist and co-author Bryce Corbett. Unmasked is an intimate account of Turia’s life and her courageous journey.
Turia Pitt was competing in an ultramarathon through Western Australia's Kimberley region in 2011 when she was caught in a bushfire. The fire left her with burns to 65% of her body and had four fingers from her left hand and her right thumb amputated.
Turia was named the New South Wales Premier's Award for Woman of the Year 2014, and was a finalist for Young Australian of the Year. She is an Ambassador for Interplast Australia and New Zealand, and has graced the cover of numerous magazines. In 2016, Turia completed her first Ironman Australia competition and completed the Ironman World Championship at Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
