Kids’ book a salve to others
ournalist and author Cassandra Thorburn is back. The ex-wife of TV host Karl Stefanovic has spoken openly in the past about her challenging split. Now, two years after the break up, Thorburn is back in the spotlight on her own terms with a children’s book Leo Lion’s BIG Bed! Yesterday she did a reading for World Play-Doh Day at Luna Park. “It’s challenging for the children, especially when it was so public,” the mother-of-three said on The Morning Show last week. “What I have gone through has given me a reason to publish this book to assist other families.” The profits from the book will go to Relationships Australia, an organisation aimed at helping families through separation. Thorburn, 47, and Stefanovic, 44, announced their split after 21 years of marriage.
