Happy New Year! We are currently working on our 2019 events program and excited to be kicking it off with Jane Caro and her new book - The Accidental Feminist.


Jane Caro is an author, novelist, broadcaster, columnist, advertising writer and social commentator.  She was awarded the 2018 Walkley for Women’s Leadership and has written a book on how one generation became feminist - by accident.  Accidental Feminists is the story of a generation of women over fifty-five who changed everything. It explores how the world we lived in—with the pill and a regular pay cheque—transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world. It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.


Jane will be in Blackheath on Saturday 23rd  March 2019 and will be in conversation with Varuna's director - Veechi Stewart.

Time: 2.00pm for 2.30pm start at The George Boutique Hotel, 194 Great Western Hwy Blackheath, Saturday 23rd March.  Cost is $20 ($17 conc) and includes afternoon tea. Bookings are essential. Please phone the shop on 4787 6340 or email
