Author encounter: Rebekah Robertson – About a girl

Geelong Library & Heritage Centre VIC Geelong

Thursday September 12th
Arts and crafts

In 2000, Rebekah Robertson gave birth to twin boys, George and Harry. But as they grew older, their preferences began to show, and by the age of three it was clear Georgie was drawn to anything that was pretty or had a skirt that could swirl. Rebekah and her husband united in their determination to help her live freely and fearlessly. Their case was the start of the long road to justice for transgender children in Australia and became the basis of the 2013 landmark decision to remove the Family Court’s jurisdiction. This is Rebekah Robertson’s extraordinary personal story of raising her transgender child, Georgie Stone, who has become a voice not just for other transgender kids – but for an emerging generation.

Join us for this special Word for Word National Non-Fiction Festival Preview Week event presenting non-fiction author encounters to whet your appetite ahead of Word for Word festival in November.

Lunch-time Relaxation Session
Take a short break from your busy day to relax and be still.

Through guided meditation and visualisation, these relaxation sessions will gently invite you to slow down, come back to your breath, and re-energise. The sessions have been created for everyBODY of all ages, fitness and flexibility levels – all we will do is relearn how to deeply relax.

Eery Thursday for 5 weeks, from 12:30pm -1:00pm, starting 15th August. Please arrive 5 minutes before to get settled, as we will start on time.

The $5 fee can be paid on the door in cash or by card.

RSVP encouraged; please contact 9484 5806 or send us an email at community@bridge.org.au

Chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own mat, cushions or blankets. Our body temperature drops a few degrees when we are relaxed, so bring what you need to be comfortable.

The sessions are led by by meditation and dance teacher Mary Jo Straford. Mary currently teaches yoga, dance and movement, relaxation and health education that relies on the body’s own wisdom and listening to what our body needs to heal.
