WORD FOR WORD FESTIVAL - Panel Discussion - On Young Shoulders

Word for Word Festival

Event Date: 
21 November 2020
Author / Presenters: 
Shannon Molloy, Chloe Higgins & Bryan Andy

Catastrophe, grief, heartbreak and betrayal. These are the raw emotions laid bare by young memoirists Shannon Molloy and writer and Director of the Wollongong Writers’ Festival, Chloe Higgins. Molloy’s Fourteen is a deeply personal story of a gay kid that faces a terrible year of torment, and survives. Higgins’ The Girls is a memoir of family, grief and sexuality that begins with an unimaginable tragedy. While autobiographies reflect on long full lives, these writers have chosen to perfectly capture the uncertainty, angst and ultimately the resilience of youth.
