Women of Letters is a lecture series and now a book curated by Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire. "Some of Australia’s finest dames of stage, screen and page have delivered missives on a series of themes, collected here for the first time. Claudia Karvan sends ‘A love letter’ to love itself, Helen Garner contacts ghosts of her past in ‘The letter I wish I’d written’, Noni Hazlehurst dispatches a stinging rebuke ‘To my first boss’, and Megan Washington pays tribute to her city and community as she writes ‘To the best present I ever received’."
Although they are based in Australia, there is an upcoming event on March 27th at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in New York City. "Australia's best-selling literary salon comes to New York for a lively celebration of the lost art of letter writing. Seven outstanding females read live missives "To the person I misjudged." Stamps provided." I think the most intriguing bit is that last line, "Stamps provided." If you are in the area, I'd encourage you to go. Thanks to Member Adrienne for the tip!
