Texta book club: Tiddas by Anita Heiss
6pm QUT Art Museum
Texta is no ordinary book club; it's for people who love art. We use fiction to unpack the subjects, themes and emotions of art. Conversation is never colourless, and is facilitated by our brains trust from QUT Creative Writing and Literary Studies. Our third book for the year is Tiddas by Anita Heiss.
Tiddas is a story about what it means to be a friend. Five women, best friends for decades, meet once a month to talk about books ... and life, love and the jagged bits in between. Dissecting each other's lives seems the most natural thing in the world – and honesty, no matter how brutal, is something they treasure. Best friends tell each other everything, don't they? But each woman carries a complex secret and one weekend, without warning, everything comes unstuck.
Held in conjunction with the exhibition Carol Jerrems: photographic artist, join us for a brief tour of the exhibition followed by a glass of wine and generous amounts of healthy conversation.
