Event highlights in March
Events Manager Chris Gordon shares some highlights from our March program of events, one for each week of the month.
Melbourne’s own voices are coming together for this event. Rafael Epstein will talk on his early friendship with Ben Zygier, a young Australian swept up in international intelligence, with radio presenter Jon Faine as part of a discussion on Raf’s new book, Prisoner X.
When: Tuesday 11 March, 6.30pm.
Where: Readings Carlton.
Bookings: Free, but please book on 9347 6633.
I’m looking forward to having lunch with the leading know-all of Australian art and am hoping that over a glass of wine and a plate of antipasto I will learn a little, and enjoy myself a lot! Come along too for delicious food, wine by Brown Brothers and an informal (but informative) discussion about the art around us as Sasha Grishin talks on his magnum opus, Australian Art: A History.
When: Friday 21 March, 12.00 for 12.30pm -1.30pm.
Where: Readings Hawthorn, upstairs.
Bookings: Please book on 9819 1917. Entry is $25 per person and the ticket price includes lunch and wine and is redeemable if you purchase a copy of Australian Art: A History at the event.
I’m very much in awe of musician Kate Ceberano. Her list of achievements is so extensive and I feel fortunate to be able to meet her. Join me for a night of intimate soulful sounds and storytelling as Kate, surely Melbourne’s favourite sister, talks on her memoir I’m Talking and plays a few songs.
When: Wednesday 26 March, 6.30pm – 8pm.
Where: Palace Westgarth, 89 High Street, Northcote.
Bookings: Entry is $40 per person and includes a signed first edition of I’m Talking. To RSVP please click here.
And last but certainly not least, I’m very excited to be meeting Erik Jensen, the new 25-year old editor of The Saturday Paper. I’m so pleased that this newspaper is now with us - independent media must be supported so we can continue to live in a society that recognises freedom and diversity. Together with a selection of contributors, Erik will discuss the role of independent journalism, as well as answer questions from the audience.
When: Monday 31 March, 6.30pm.
Where: Readings Hawthorn.
Bookings: Free, but you must book on 9819 1917.
