Between Us: Women of Letters




Between Us is an inspiring and engaging collection of all-new letters from some of Australia's best-loved people.

Writing a letter can be an act of confession or celebration, while receiving one can bring joy, insight and vivid memories. Ambassadors for correspondence Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire have lured some of our best and brightest to the literary afternoons of Women of Letters to write and read missives of all kinds.

Bestselling novelist Hannah Kent exchanges letters about books, editing and synchronicity with her publisher Alex Craig.

Intimate and outrageous declarations of love and friendship are shared between actor Rhys Muldoon and musician Kram.

And award-winning cartoonist First Dog on the Moon expresses his affection for his editor Sophie Black through drawings (while she sticks to the written word).

Between Us is an inspiring and engaging collection of all-new letters from some of Australia's best-loved people.
