Shearers Bookshop in Sydney is getting in a day early with an event on Wednesday March 7 at 7.30 pm. The panel, to be chaired by Kirsten Tranter includes Lenny Bartulin, Emily Maguire, Jane Gleeson-White and Sophie Hamley.
On Thursday March 8 you’ll definitely find us at:
The Carrington in Katoomba, from 6-7:30 pm.The panel is Tara Moss, Claire Corbett, Elizabeth Lhuede and that event is also to be chaired by Kirsten Tranter.
During the day we’re popping up all over the place as well:
There will be a schools debate at Federation Square’s BMW Edge at 10 am on ‘Is men’s writing better than women’s?’ Debating teams from Fintona Girls’ School and Camberwell Grammar School will meet on Thursday 8 March to debate the proposition and explore issues of gender difference, bias and representation in literature. The debating teams will be both boys and girls, drawn from Years 10, 11 or 12. The judging panel will be composed of representatives from Fed Ed, Debaters Association Victoria and The Stella Prize.
The Wodonga Library is holding an IWD event but are still finalising the details. I’ll post them when they come to hand.
We’re pleased with the enthusiastic response and suspect there may be more events than we’re aware of. If you also have an event planned please get in touch and tell us about it.
