In Which My Mum Is Proud and My Armchair Looks AWESOME

April 18th, 2012 at 20:20

My library (with me in it) was a centrefold in today’s Hobart Mercury, along with a great article by Bec Fitzgibbon on genre, gender and publishing. Is gender equality the next big thing in literature?

This pic courtesy of @beesncheese who achieved something I never have, by capturing a picture of my mother smiling at the camera, rather than diving behind the nearest rosebush to avoid it. All my other pics of her smiling have only been achieved by the judicious application of grandchildren and stealth.

    I wish I’d known – would have bought the Mercury! They are both great photos. Now I’ll have to see if anyone has a copy… :)

    That is quite awesome. Also, if Equality is the new Big Thing then I am ALL FOR IT! :D
