Words After Dark: 'Fury' with Kathryn Heyman

About this Event

Antipodes Bookshop and Gallery invites you to an evening with

Katheryn Heyman, author of the new memoir 'Fury'

A roadmap of recovery and transformation, Fury is the story of becoming heroic in a culture which doesn't see heroism in the shape of a girl.

At the age of twenty, after a traumatic sexual assault trial, Kathryn Heyman ran away from her life and became a deckhand on a fishing trawler in the Timor Sea.

Coming from a family of poverty and violence, she had no real role models, no example of how to create or live a decent life, how to have hope or expectations. But she was a reader. She understood story, and the power of words to name the world. This was to become her salvation.

A reflection on the wider stories of class, and of growing up female with all its risks and rewards, Fury is a memoir of courage and determination, of fighting back and finding joy.
