Bassendean Library have asked me to present at their Literary Salon on Wednesday 17th May - think musical soiree with High Tea, stunning music and scandalous stories from Australia's women composers. It's the perfect event to take your mother to for Mother's Day! I have also invited some local friends as Bassendean is just down the road from us in Guildford.
I'm heading into RTRFM tomorrow, book under my arm, to promote the Literary Salon. Tune in to 92.1FM at 10:10am to hear me chatting on Artbeat about Women of Note and why women composers are so inspiring and intrinsic to Australia's music history.
"Everything I've ever wanted to do would've been easier... had I been a boy. But never mind, I never paid much attention to it, I just marched in and there I was." Peggy Glanville-Hicks
"The world at large thinks a woman can't be creative. A woman can contribute in a special way. I don't think women want to write the same type of thing as men, but their contribution is no less important." Margaret Sutherland
The Literary Salon is 6-8pm Wednesday 17th May at Bassendean Memorial Library. This is a free event but places are limited. Go online to book or contact
