15 October @ The Bird, Northbridge ·
Presented by Bad Diaries Salon ·

Live literary series Bad Diaries Salon brings bad to The Bird on 15 October.

An outstanding lineup of five writers – AJ Betts, Michelle Johnston, Sisonke Msimang,  Holden Sheppard and Annabel Smith, introduced by Bad Diaries Salon co-curator Tracy Farr –will read from their unpublished diaries and notebooks, responding to this salon’s theme: BURN.

A hit at festivals and one-off events in Australia and New Zealand since 2017, Bad Diaries Salon started with a call out from Jenny Ackland on Twitter: were there any writers who still had their old, bad teenage diaries, and would they be prepared to read them live, in front of an audience?

Each salon is a unique combination of theme and readers, a performance that is raw, unedited, original and candid: the written word, rediscovered and shared.

The Bird is at 181 William St, Northbridge.
Doors 7.30pm, first reader from 8pm.
Tickets $10 at the door.
