Join Sue Ingleton, Wendy Harmer and special guest Edith, for an entertaining performance to launch Sue Ingleton’s new book, Making Trouble (Tongued With Fire). The book is about 2 rebellious women, Harriet Rowell (age 23) and Alice Moon (age 20) who travel from England to Australia in 1875. With courageous defiance and rebellious natures, Harriet and Alice take on the world at a dangerous time for women’s freedom of expression. They were in love in a time when many women were in love with each other but held such love secretly. But love ends. Alice, who all her life has laughed in the face of death and danger, is found dead in her bed. She is 37. Thrown into turmoil, her female friends build a wall of silence around the shocking death. Their suspicions rest upon the powerful, chauvinistic scientist, John McGarvie Smith. They leave a public accusation on her gravestone, a clue for a future woman to bring justice. I am that woman.
The book will be available to purchase on the night.
