The Shephard's Hut, Tim Winton's latest book, is a study on the impact of toxic masculinity. He's been thinking about it for a while. His presentation Tender Hearts, Sons of Brutes explores what’s facing boys in the age of #metoo. He opens up about his own family, his childhood and how masculinity can and should change.

There are still tickets left to Tender Hearts, Sons of Brutes in Melbourne and Launceston. You can find out more at the Penguin website.

 If you'd like more information on The Shephard’s Hut you’ll find it on Booktopia.
