Well-behaved Women: Emily Paull

17 March @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


In her timely debut, Emily Paull voices a chorus of characters that reveal and re-evaluate the expectations of women in Australia today—after all, well behaved women rarely make history.

In Well-behaved Women, Emily Paull expertly conveys the small but cumulative acts of emotional repression women endure in order to keep the peace. With great skill and poetry, Paull draws our attention to the psychological toll that such daily concessions take. These fabulous stories will make you smile and cry; but most of all, will make you angry—on behalf of all these quietly suffering and “well behaved” women we all know so well.’ — Melanie Cheng, Victorian Premier’s Literary Award Winner

Emily Paull is a former-bookseller and future librarian from Perth who writes short stories and historical fiction.

Copies of Well-behaved Women will be available for purchase.
