Thursday, 30 August, 8 pmBook Ticket
Ahoy, adventurers! Get ready to burn your bras, brandish your breakthroughs and blast off for this scandalous literary expedition. Coming to you for WORD Festival 2018, it's Naked Girls Reading: The Women of History Edition!
The sky’s the limit this August. Join us as we trek our way through the literary legacy of history’s most extraordinary girls and women: the pioneers, the picketers, the rebels and the revolutionaries! We’ll be celebrating and remembering the radical work of the writers, makers and rule breakers who came before us in this very special Naked Girls Reading edition. It’ll be a voyeur’s voyage not to be missed.
Naked Girls Reading is exactly what is sounds like - completely naked women reading literature aloud. It's a sexy book club, a sapphic slumber party, a sumptuous and scandalous event sure to arouse, educate and entertain all at once. Come along to experience the ancient and beautiful art of storytelling - and also, you know, boobs.
Tess Hazelhurst, Belle De Jour
Hosted, as always, by the adorable Hugo Grrrl.
These unclad, clever ladies have picked their favourite bits of iconic groundbreaking literature to recite for you. Expect tales of all sorts of revolutionaries; from Linda Lovelace to Jenny Shipley, from Joan of Arc to Malala Yousafzai. We’ll be sauntering through the literary landscape of all female excellence in an evening. We’ll see all you brave bookworms there!
And remember, you can’t spell ‘literature’ without ‘t’ and ‘a’!
And it's not just for the ladies! Our events are open to everyone, from all walks of life, of all genders, all sexualities, all everything. Come along.
Please note: seating is not allocated so arrive early to nab a good vantage point. Latecomers may not be admitted, and door sales are cash only.
