Bad health and mobility problems have forced us to put our Cherry Gardens property on the market so it was a welcome opportunity to get along to the Bibliotheca Bar and Book Exchange in Adelaide for the Spring Shorts instalment of the Quart Short Literary Reading Nights, to sip on a Yamazaki whisky and forget about the stresses of real estate for a while. Veteran actor Patrick Frost read my short story My Life © brilliantly. It’s an interesting experience disassociatedly hearing your own work coming from someone else’s mouth. Actors Michael Allen, Nikki Fort, Robbie Greenwell, Holly Meyers and Lucy Slattery read a range of new work by Ben Brooker, Bernadette Eden, Ashley Kalagian Blunt, Gemma Parker, Sally Ryhanen and Deb Wain.
Thanks once again to the actors and the Quart Short Collective (Janet Thomas, Ben Brooker & Patrick Frost) for promoting Australian writing!
