PEN Melbourne in partnership with Readings Books presents:

EVENT: ‘Profiting from the rebellion of our parents.’ Sara Dowse and Judith Buckrich in conversation.

International Women’s Day 2017
Wednesday 8 March, 6.30pm
Readings Bookstore
309 Lygon Street, Carlton

Join us for a conversation with Sara Dowse and Judith Buckrich, two profoundly political activist writers who learned at their communist parents’ knees. Sara and Judith will talk activism and the turbulence of the 20th century.

Sara Dowse is a Sydney-based writer, artist and feminist who in the 1970s headed the inaugural Office of Women’s Affairs in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.  She is still considered to be Australia’s pioneer ‘femocrat’. Her novel As the Lonely Fly is set for release in the first half of 2017.

Dr Judith Buckrich is an award winning historian. Arnold Zable said of Judith’s recent memoir The Political is Personal (it) ‘is an inspiring recollection of a life lived to the full, epic in scope, tempered by an acute political awareness, driven by a hunger for knowledge and experience, and crafted with the skill of a seasoned writer.’
