Wheeling Into Bendigo

In 2011 the Wheeler Centre heads out of Melbourne to bring ten great events to regional towns across the state. This month, we’ll be in Bendigo with columnist, author and cartoonist Kaz Cooke.

There’s barely a house with a small child that doesn’t have a well-thumbed copy of Kaz Cooke’s Up the Duff or Kidwrangling adorning a bookshelf. Now, Kaz is back with Women’s Stuff, a definitive bible for all things woman.

In town for only one night, Kaz will be discussing confidence, body image, eating, health, hormones, bosoms, hairy bits, love, heartbreak, sex, mental health, wrinkle creams, cosmetic surgery, friends, sleep, home, false eyelashes, menopause and whatever else takes her fancy.

On the Road

We can’t wait to get back on the road again – bringing some of our favourite writers to regional Victoria. We’ll be packing up the car with books and authors, travelling from country to coast … and making sure Melbourne doesn’t get all the literary fun. Look out for our bootful of books – coming to a town near you.
