It’s April! Something witty about rabbits and Jesus! And lest we forget that your friends at Women of Letters will be returning from their overseas jaunt to the magnificent surrounds of the REGAL BALLROOM, where they will celebrate once again for your heart-pleasure the world of letters. On Sunday, April 27th, WoL will present together for the first time ever on stage: writer and deputy editor of The Lifted Brow STEPHANIE VAN SCHILT, singer-songwriter JESS MCAVOY, comedian and actor TANIA LACY, author LINDA JAIVIN, presenter and commentator DEBORAH CLAY, and musical wunderkind EVELYN MORRIS (AKA Pikelet). These fine females will each be penning ‘A Letter To My Mysterious Stranger’. There'll be the usual wine/aerogramme-penning combo we’ve grown to love and a special DJ set by the rakishly handsome SAM COONEY. Join us for a most pleasant afternoon celebrating a diverse range of strong female talent whilst simultaneously raising funds for animal rescue shelter, Edgar's Mission (http://www.edgarsmission.org.au/).
