An afternoon discussion with Dame Fiona Kidman - WGN

What:  Afternoon tea organised by ALRANZ, with Dame Fiona Kidman talking about her latest book of short stories The Trouble With Fire
Where:  Mezzanine Community Room, Wellington Central Library, Victoria St
When:  Saturday 3rd September, 1pm to 3pm

Message from the organisers:
ALRANZ is delighted to invite you to hear Dame Fiona Kidman speaking to us about her latest book of short stories 'The Trouble with Fire'. In her writing Dame Fiona explores the many facets of relationships. One of the stories called “Extremes” (set in the 70s when trips to Australia were common) poignantly considers two women's choices one to have an abortion and another to continue with the pregnancy – and the consequences for the next generation.

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion afterwards. Unity Books will be there selling copies of both Dame Fiona's book and also Margaret Sparrow’s recently published book “Abortion then & Now: New Zealand abortion stories from 1940-1980”.

Afternoon tea will be provided. There is no charge to attend this special event but donations are always appreciated.
