In 2017, Centre for Stories installed a beautiful reading room. We set out on a hunt for books and have been lucky enough to populate our library with donations.
Our donors have included staff, volunteers and friends, all with one very important thing in common: their love of books. We decided to sit down with three of our donors who have delivered us books by the box load on several occasions, with genres spanning anywhere from autobiographies, literary fiction, children’s novels, sci-fi, poetry, Australian history and beyond. Their love of the written word is inspiring, thought-provoking, and will remind you how powerful books really are.
Thank you to Dennis Haskell, Susan Midalia and Peter Dowding for your donations, and thank you to everyone else who has donated even one book to our library.
Roanna and Chris will discuss writing practice, difficulties encountered in the literary world, what it means to write about tolerance and intolerance while breaking out of the dominant narrative, and much more. Book Online
