BOYS WILL BE BOYS

POWER, PATRIARCHY AND THE TOXIC BONDS OF MATESHIP

Clementine Ford

***ONE PERTH EVENT ONLY***

From the author of the bestselling feminist manifesto Fight Like A Girl comes an incendiary new book that reveals how the patriarchy is just as harmful to boys and men as it is to women and girls.

 

Clementine Ford reports that one of the questions she is most asked in person and online is ‘How do I raise my son to be a feminist? How do I make sure he’s a supporter rather than a perpetrator?’ It is a question that many parents with sons are haunted by and, now that she is mother to a baby boy, it is a question that haunts Clementine too.

 

How does a feminist raise a son in a world that conditions boys into entitlement, privilege and power at the expense of not just girls’ humanity but also their own? All boys start out innocent but by the time they are adolescents many of them will subscribe to a view of masculinity that is openly contemptuous of women and girls.

 

Clementine Ford will be in conversation with Brooke Davis to discuss 'Boys will be Boys' on Thursday 11th October at 6.30pm at the Judith Cottier Theatre, Perth College.  

 

WHEN: Thursday 11th October at 6.30pm, Book collection from 5.30pm. Doors open 6pm.

THE YEAR OF THE FARMER

Rosalie Ham

From the No. 1 bestselling author of The Dressmaker comes a darkly satirical novel about a country town at war with the elements and one another...

 

Rosalie will be in conversation with Geraldine to discuss her latest novel - The Year of the Farmer on Monday 15th October 6.30pm at Excelsior House, Perth College.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK: In a quiet farming town somewhere in country New South Wales, war is brewing. The last few years have been punishingly dry, especially for the farmers, but otherwise, it's all Neralie Mackintosh's fault. If she'd never left town then her ex, the hapless but extremely eligible Mitchell Bishop, would never have fallen into the clutches of the truly awful Mandy, who now lords it over everyone as if she owns the place. So, now that Neralie has returned to run the local pub, the whole town is determined to reinstate her to her rightful position in the social order. But Mandy Bishop has other ideas. Meanwhile the head of the local water board - Glenys 'Gravedigger' Dingle - is looking for a way to line her pockets at the expense of hardworking farmers already up to their eyes in debt. And Mandy and Neralie's war may be just the chance she was looking for... A darkly satirical novel of a small country town battling the elements and one another, from the bestselling author of The Dressmaker.

 

WHEN: Monday 15th October at 6.30pm, Book collection from 5.30pm. Doors open 6pm.

Session concludes at 7.45pm and will be followed by book signing.

 SPECIAL GUEST

Annabel Crabb

If you are someone who prepares for guests by sweeping bills, laundry and newspapers behind sofa cushions, take heart! It's possible to be an imperfect host, but happily so. 

Annabel will be in conversation with Jane to discuss the recipes that are part of Special Guest on Thursday 22nd November 6.30pm at the Judith Cottier Theatre, Perth College.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK: The essential ingredient is not, paradoxically, the food, nor the perfect house to host in, but the sentiment you convey when you open the door. Do your eyes say: 'I like you and I enjoy your company,' or does a weepy cloud of visceral horror descend as pine nuts burn quietly in the kitchen?

Special Guest is a gentle guide to turning easy basic fare into something of a celebration. For when you want to say to your friends with their spouses and ten small children, 'Why don't you stay for lunch?' without hating yourself afterwards. Learn the lesson of 'one splendid thing done well' without regard to the hundred other things and call the day a success. Pick up some pointers for the modern conundrum that is cooking for people with seemingly incompatible dietary requirements.

Hosting your friends is not about showing off; it is about delighting others. Your dining table might be decorated with a pile of unmatched socks and kids' homework, but that's no reason not to invite friends in for a chat, a sit-down and something delicious to eat.

 

WHEN: Thursday 22nd November at 6.30pm. Book collection from 5.30pm. Doors open 6pm.

Session concludes at 7.45pm and will be followed by book signing.
