The Collective, 139 Elgin St Carlton

Hosted by Readings Carlton.

We are delighted to bring you a conversation with feminist writer Karen Pickering and Kathryn Heyman as they reflect on the wider stories of class, and of growing up female with all its risks and rewards.

Kathryn Heyman’s Fury is a memoir of courage and determination, of demanding joy and demanding to be seen. This is a roadmap of recovery and transformation, this is the story of becoming heroic in a culture which does not see heroism in the shape of a girl. This is a story of inspiration.
