Fairy tales for grown ups

Think that fairy tales are just old-fashioned stories you read to children at bedtime? A special event coming up at Castlemaine Library is going to change your mind.
South of the Sun – Australian Fairy Tales for the 21st Century is a ground-breaking anthology put together by the Australian Fairy Tale Society. As part of the book’s launch, the local library is hosting an event on Saturday July 3 with renowned local authors Carmel Bird and Cate Kennedy and Ballarat artist Sarah Hart, in a panel chaired by local photographer and illustrator Lorena Carrington, as they discuss fairy tales for grown-ups in contemporary Australia.
