Free Event & The Early Words

The Early Words: Literary Selfies

When was the first time you saw yourself represented in literature? If you’re a person of colour, it is rare to find a fictional character who looks like you and who you identify with. Join three writers as they read a letter to the character they first saw themselves in, discuss why representation matters, and break down whiteness in the literary canon.

With Flora Chol, Vanessa Giron and Hannah Morphy-Walsh

The Early Words is supported by Coffee Supreme, Schulz Organic Dairy and Irrewarra

Thursday 27 June, 8.15-9.30am
