the reading room :: e-newsletter #69


After a beautiful night of arts and cookies (see here for recipe) for the opening of Steph Lyall & Fruzsi Kenez's exhibition last Thursday, we are pleased to say the work will be up for another few weeks. Make sure you pop in and have a look.

Feeling lost after the festival period? Come on down to the Happiness Sessions - laughter, positivity and smiles abound. Things aren't really that bad! Also if you feeel like dancing those post-festival blues away, try Dancing Room! Tuesday nights, at various locations, please note it is not an event that is facilitated by the Reading Room, but a separate commitee. The best way to find out where it is held each week is via their facebook page.

:: Thursday 22nd March - 12th April :: ‘Living a life that I can’t leave behind’ – Fruzsi Kenez and Stephanie Lyall 
To feel tied to somewhere you cannot be is as crippling as it is thrilling. Fruzsi is tied to Hungary (her birthplace), the Netherlands and Germany; places she has travelled, lived and loved in. Stephanie is tied to Denmark; she lived there in 2008 and fell in love with its bikes, its design, its pastries, its funny little (impossible) language and its cosiness. Fruszi and Stephanie hope to exorcise their nostalgia by sharing these things with you.
Fruzsi Kenez is storyteller, traveler and curious fan of the unusual and the strange; an illustrator, ceramist and photographer.
Stephanie Lyall is a jill of all trades who is constantly dreaming of Scandinavia. Sometimes she takes photographs.

:: Wednesday 4th April ::
April Meeting of the Adelaide Feminists Reading Group :: 6:30 - 9:30

If you thought feminism was just about men and women, think again: this month, we're reading Viviane Namaste's 'Sex Change, Social Change: Reflections on Identity, Institutions, and Imperialism', which addresses the less- discussed topic of how feminism relates to transsexual politics.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
