From prominent Melbourne author and journalist Jane Sullivan comes Storytime, a bibliomemoir for adults exploring the interesting and emotional experience behind reading, and why childhood books, all these years later, are still vitally important.
Jane takes us from Wonderland to Narnia; is enchanted by Winnie-the-Pooh and the Magic Pudding, amazed by Enid Blyton and frightened by the Tales of Terror. Then there is the one book Jane truly hated – Little Women. Why had she despised Jo March, a seemingly perfect role model for a young, aspiring writer?
Join Jane Sullivan and literary editor of The Age, Jason Steger, for a night in conversation on how it is that the enchantment of books we read as children can shape the people we are today.
The event is free, but please book here
