How the Australian Fairy Tale Society battled the witches and dragons of publishing (and Covid!) to make an enchanting illustrated book of Australian Fairy Tales for the 21st century. But they’re not the kind of stories you read to children at bedtime, these are strictly for the grown-ups.

Presented by Gabi Brown and Sarah Hart

Gabi Brown Speaker

Gabi Brown is a Victorian based writer who has often been described as being away with the fairies. After a lifetime of spinning gold out of straw as a journalist and producer of BBC  radio documentaries, she’s happily reverted to type and is currently writing a book about unpleasant faeries, ancient Persian birds and why you should never throw stones.

Sarah Hart Speaker

Sarah Hart is a Ballarat-based, mixed-media artist and writer with an abiding passion for fairy tales, feminism, the glory in the ordinary and the stories and experiences of women. She has been involved in both group and solo exhibitions and her illustrations and writing have appeared in a range of magazines and journals.
