HJ Daley Library will host well-known journalist, Tracey Spicer, on Tuesday 29 August, as part of the Campbelltown City Library Service’s Visiting Authors Program.
Tracey is an award-winning journalist who has worked on radio, anchored national news, current affairs and lifestyle programs on television, and is a weekly columnist for Fairfax Media. She is also a TV presentation trainer, and co-founder of Women in Media.
In her memoir, The Good Girl Stripped Bare, Tracey 'sheconstructs' the barriers facing women in the workplace, and encourages women to ‘shake off the shackles of the good girl’.
The Visiting Authors Program gives locals the opportunity to hear first-hand from writers who share their stories and experiences, and this year has already attracted popular authors Peter FitzSimons, Amanda Howard and Candice Fox.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, encouraged the community to come along and hear about Tracey’s 30-year career as a journalist, and her views on the treatment of women in the television industry.
“I’m very pleased Council is hosting this fantastic program, and impressed by the calibre of writers we’ve attracted, including journalist Tracey Spicer, a sought-after speaker and trainer who’ll be discussing her first book with a local audience,” he said.
The free event starts at 6pm, and bookings are essential.
