BETTER READ THAN DEAD

6:30PM


Join Bri, along with Fiona Wright for the launch of Eggshell Skull - Better Read Than Dead's June Book of the Month!

A fiercely intelligent, heartbreakingly honest memoir and feminist call to arms in the tradition of Fight Like A Girl.
Bri Lee began her first day of work at the Brisbane Magistrates Court as a bright-eyed judge's associate. Eighteen months later she was back as the complainant in her own case.......

This is the story of Bri's journey through the Australian legal system; first as the daughter of a policeman, then as a law student, and finally as a judge's associate in both metropolitan and regional Queensland--where justice can look very different, especially for women. Confronted by horrific criminal behaviour every day in court, Bri's eyes were opened to the inequity of the legal system and how complainants in sex crime investigations and trials struggle to receive justice, are re-victimised, and let down by the system with heartbreaking frequency.

POCKET CITY FARMS WORKSHOPS

 

 

Pocket City Farms is a productive hub the local community can gather to learn about all things farming and food growing, buy local produce grown with organic principles, participate in the volunteer program, and take part in many workshops and events.

In the surrounds of their productive green space in the city Pocket City Farms run regular workshops across a range of sustainable lifestyle topics from growing food in small spaces to native stingless beekeeping, and wooden spoon carving to natural indigo dyeing.

They hold monthly crop swaps with Crop Swap Sydney for trading home harvests, as well as weekly volunteer sessions enabling you to dig your hands in the soil and learn food growing skills direct from the farmer. Meanwhile you can also take a yoga class outdoors overlooking the farm, or bring the kids along for a Little Farmers session.

The produce from their ecological market garden is available each week at the Pocket City Farm Store, along with other goods from local producers, including organic sourdough and local tea.
