Writing the Underclass @ BWF 11/09/09

Amy will be a guest at the Brisbane Writers Festival on the panel Writing the Underclass, with Elaine Henry, CEO of The Smith Family.
It’s a free event on Friday 11 September from 4:15 PM – 5:15 PM @ GoMA Cinema B.

Description: Society’s margins can mean the end of the road for some, and offer the possibility of escape for others. The underclass narrative is underrepresented on bookshop shelves. Amy Barker aims to change that.

The Smith Family is a national, independent non-profit organisation committed to helping disadvantaged Australian children by unlocking opportunities through education and learning.
