Legacy Books: Evelyn Araluen, Alison Croggon, Alison Evans, Ann-Marie Priest and Jamila Rizvi

Audio from FWF18 Melbourne storytelling session: Legacy Books: Their Impact, Their Legacy, Our Future.

The opening night of FWF18 Melbourne was a sell out event. Evelyn Araluen, Alison Croggon, Alison Evans, Ann-Marie Priest and Jamila Rizvi, revealed a surprising collection of books and this session was a delightful reminder that a legacy book can be pretty much anything, as long as it connects with, unlocks and transforms a person.

Listen to the podcast on the Writes4Women website.
