Emily Paull will be in conversation with Michelle Johnston at 3.30pm the following day in the same location. She will be discussing her collection, Well-behaved Women, which weaves a delicate portrait  of the expectations of women in contemporary Australia.

You can also hear each read from their debuts during the Slow Read sessions.

Bindy will follow her a few hours later, at 5pm, and will be reading  alongside Heather Rose, Catherine Noske and Ingrid Laguna for Women Who Read.

Bindy and Emily’s in conversations are both ticketed at $19—you can purchase tickets for Bindy’s event here, and Emily’s here. The Slow Read sessions are free.
