Join us for an exclusive showcase of the 2022 Stella shortlist, announced at the end of March.

Now in its tenth year, the Stella Prize has become an indispensable part of Australia’s literary culture, celebrating the work of women and non-binary writers, driving book sales, sparking book clubs and influencing the conversation around gender equity.

The autumn Literary Preview, presented in partnership with Readings and Stella, will treat book lovers to an exclusive showcase of the recently announced 2022 Stella shortlist. Hear about the books which are in the running for the $50,000 literary award and find your next great read.

The wonderful Astrid Edwards will host the evening, while renowned actress Virginia Gay will perform readings from the shortlisted books during the event.
