Join Tracey Spicer at Kogarah Library as part of the Sydney Writers’ Festival

01/05/2017

Georges River Libraries welcome the return of Sydney Writers’ Festival events to the local area in what has become an exciting fixture on their events calendar.

Join one of Australia’s best-loved journalists Tracey Spicer, as she discusses The Good Girl Stripped Bare, the frank and funny ‘femoir’ of her life.

Tracey’s book follows her trajectory from young ‘bogan’, to beloved television anchor, to being sacked after having a baby.

That’s when Tracey shed her ‘good girl’ attitude and sued the network for pregnancy discrimination.

Tracey’s important memoir attacks the structural barriers facing women in the workplace and encourages women to speak up.

Over the past 30 years, the award-winning journalist has anchored national news, current affairs and lifestyle programs on Network Ten, Sky News, and ABC TV.

She's also brought her sassy style to radio shows on 702 ABC Sydney and 2UE.

The 49-year-old is a weekly columnist for Fairfax Media, TV presentation trainer at AFTRS, and co-founder of Women in Media, a national mentoring and networking initiative.

Her TEDx Talk has been seen by almost 1.5 million people.
