Want to go to the Sydney Writers Festival without leaving Hobart? You can!

TAF2019 is teaming up with the State Bookstore to bring you the Clementine Ford, Adam Liaw and Jan Fran SWF Live & Local session at State Cinema - Boys to Men. A second session, featuring Leigh Sales, is also available on Friday morning.

Join us in the Screening Room as we beam live to the Carriageworks in Sydney. In Hobart, your session will be hosted by Chris Gallagher, former director of the Hobart Writers Festival.

Tickets just $15 (no concession).


Clementine Ford’s Boys Will be Boys is an acclaimed call to action against a culture of entitlement, privilege and power.

Jan Fran talks to Clementine and writer and chef Adam Liaw about the harm toxic masculinity inflicts on women and men, the progress we’re making to counteract it, and how we can raise our boys to become better men.

Stay and chat afterwards, or join us in the cafe for a debrief after the session.
