The Wheeler Centre, Performance Space
Due to COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.
Acclaimed authors Briohny Doyle (Echolalia) and Delia Falconer (Signs and Wonders) have each penned singular books bound by an exploration of what it means to be a woman, mother, and artist in an era of ecological crisis. See them in conversation with Else Fitzgerald about their evocative works that cast light on tough moral questions, spanning family, climate change, and how the legacies of colonialism and patriarchy are passed down through the generations.
