Words at Wayward
A weekly reading/speaking night for anyone who loves to read or write and wants a place to share their ideas. Taking place every Thursday night in the shop you are invited to come along and read works of any length or genre. It could be something you’ve read that excites, inspires or infuriates you- or something you’ve written and want to read out loud. Every week is different.
Join us from 6.30pm on Thursday evenings. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for more details.

JIM MIDDLETON @ WHITE RABBIT
We had a wonderful night at the White Rabbit hearing the latest on the Dismissal from Jenny Hocking (author of the Dismissal Dossier and two biographies of Gough Whitlam); Margaret Simons (journalist and co-author of Malcolm Fraser's Political Memoirs); and Jim Middleton (journalist and former chief political correspondent with the ABC). Kensington is lucky to have such talent willing to participate on a local level. We are in the process of organising more writers events for next year - stay tuned.
