Book Launch: Cautionary Tales for Excitable Girls
Readings Carlton — Woiworung Country, 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053
We are delighted to have author Anne Casey-Hardy launch her collection of short stories Cautionary Tales for Excitable Girls.
These gem-like stories are about the desire to rush out and meet life; about getting in over your head; about danger, and damage, and what it means to survive - and not always survive - the risk of being young. They chart the borderlands between girls and women, daughters and mothers, freedom and fear.
Emerging fully-formed and singing songs of both innocence and experience, Anne Casey-Hardy is the rarest of new voices: at the same time reckless and entirely in control; funny and frightening; wise and full-blooded.
