Bri Lee: The Work

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Join author, academic, and activist Bri Lee at Bondi Pavilion as she introduces her highly anticipated debut novel The Work.

A dazzling, funny, and unforgettable tale, The Work explores the biggest intersections of life: of art and commerce, of intimacy and distance, of talent and entitlement, and of labour and privilege. It is an epic and forensic exploration of modern love and passion, politics and power.  

Bri Lee is the multi-award-winning author of Eggshell SkullBeauty, and Who Gets to Be Smart. Her journalism, essays, and short stories have been published widely, and she is the creator and editor of News & Reviews. 

Facilitated by Sophie Tedmanson, Editor of The Australian Women’s Weekly.

Skip the queue and pre-purchase your copy of The Work when booking your ticket.
Orders will be available for collection at the venue from the team at Gertrude & Alice Bookstore.  
Bri Lee will be signing copies of The Work after the talk.

“This novel isn't just good; it's superb. Assured, and powerful, and intelligent, and very, VERY hard to put down. I consumed it in a passion." – Annabel Crabb
