Named one of Australia’s finest writers of this generation, Kate Forsyth is inspired by classic fairytales and folklore, and retells them from a feminist perspective. Join Kate in a conversation about childhood tales, their origins and cultural modifications, and why certain voices have been silenced over time. Why do fairytales exist and how important is it for cultures to recreate them in today’s world?

Dinobatkan sebagai salah satu penulis terbaik Australia dari generasi ini, Kate Forsyth terinspirasi oleh dongeng dan cerita rakyat klasik, dan mengisahkan kembali dari perspektif feminis. Bergabunglah dengan Kate dalam percakapan tentang dongeng masa kanak-kanak, asal-usul dan modifikasi budayanya, dan mengapa beberapa suara tertentu dibungkam seiring berjalannya waktu. Mengapa dongeng ada dan seberapa penting budaya menciptakannya kembali di masa kini?
