In 2020, in association with Bass Coast Shire Council, we were able to bring to your lounge rooms four separate digital events with some incredibly inspiring people. See below for links and more information.

Angela Savage and Pip Williams In Conversation

Angela Savage and Pip Williams in Conversation was a huge success! The authors discussed their latest respective novels, ‘Mother of Pearl’ and ‘The Dictionary of Lost Words’, as well as ideas of motherhood between the 19th and 21st Century, surrogacy, ownership and the power of language in shaping the lives of women. You can view the entire conversation below.

Creative Collaborations and Connection to Country

We were proud to present our online event, Creative Collaborations and Connection to Country. The recorded conversation between Aunty Fay Stewart-Muir, Lisa Kennedy and Dr Laura Brearley is available below! You can also pick up a copy of Aunty Fay and Lisa’s collaboration, Respect, here.

Tony Birch in conversation with Chris Flynn

Our Zoom event with celebrated Indigenous author Tony Birch in conversation with Chris Flynn was also a huge success. We highly recommend you check out his Miles Franklin short-listed novel, The White Girl, a searing and moving study of race, identity and the stolen generation.

Chris Flynn in Conversation with Helen Brown

Our first digital event was award winning author Chris Flynn in conversation with New York Times best selling author Helen Brown. These local writers discussed mankind’s troubled relationship with the animal kingdom, as featured in Chris’s latest book MAMMOTH.
