Talented curators Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire have reignited the art of letter writing with their sold out Women of Letters shows around the country where they encourage and allow our best and brightest to lay bare their sins and secrets, loves and loathings, memories and motives.
Yours Truly is an astoundingly honest, funny, warm and wise collection of letters from Australia’s favourite people. Featuring a stellar line up including Leigh Sales, Hamish Blake, Jennifer Byrne, Tom Ballard, Sarah Blasko and many many more. All royalties for the book will go to Edgar’s Mission animal rescue shelter.
Join Women of Letters, the team at Penguin Australia and some very special guests in celebrating the launch of their brand new volume in an intimate evening of women, letters, wine and music. Three of their favourite contributors will be reading new letters, especially written for the occasion, ‘to the book I wish I’d written.’ There’ll be musical proceedings, a glass of sparkling and vegetarian canapés on arrival, brand new copies of Yours Truly for sale and signing, and a pair of very pleased co-curators who’ll probably have a little bit of a cry into their champagne glasses. All proceeds from this launch also go to Edgar’s Mission, with great thanks to fortyfivedownstairs.
