Kick On for Literacy - Sydney Writers Festival (24 May)
Prestigious Festival guests face off in a debate that has long divided us: is the book better than the ball? Lovers of AFL including Shelley Ware (from cult footy show Marngrook) and David Lawrence argue in favour of the book, while our very own ambassador, author Dr Anita Heiss rallies with Graeme Simsion supporting the ball. Audience participation is encouraged at this special Festival event which features auctions, raffles, and a performance by our ambassador and Play School’s Justine Clarke, all held in The Hemingway Bar. Hosted by the Epic Good Foundation as a fundraiser for our Foundation.
