An Evening with Lindy West

On Wednesday 1 March we welcome Seattle-based writer, editor and performer Lindy West to Brisbane to talk pop culture, social justice and body image with trademark humour. 

From a painfully shy childhood to her public war with stand-up comedians over rape jokes, Lindy’s memoir Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman is narrated with a genius blend of humour and pathos that manages to unlock the comedy within horrific internet trolling and wring tears of a story about diarrhoea.

Date: Wednesday 1 March
Time: 6.30pm – 7.30pm
Venue: Auditorium 1, State Library of Queensland
Tickets: Full $35, Concession $32, Member $30

An Evening with Thordis Elva and Tom Stranger

On Thursday 2 March, Iceland’s Thordis Elva and Australia’s Tom Stranger reveal to conversational maestro Richard Fidler their unique and unprecedented collaboration as survivor and perpetrator.

They were an ordinary teenage couple, until one evening when Tom raped Thordis. Without a single word about the betrayal, they separated and tried to forget. Seventeen years on, and after hundreds of searingly honest emails, they flew from opposite sides of the globe to meet up and work through their guilt, shame and pain. Their journey, chronicled in their joint memoir South of Forgiveness, is a true story of finding hope even in the most wounded of places.

Date: Thursday 2 March
Time: 6.30pm – 7.30pm
Venue: The Edge, State Library of Queensland
Tickets: Full $35, Concession $32, Member $30
