Upstairs at Better Read Than Dead
Bad Women Book Club
Female characters are often labelled "unlikable" or "problematic," purely for being three-dimensional. Here, we dissect books with female characters deemed difficult at their centre. Meeting on the third Wednesday of each month.

Upstairs at Better Read Than Dead, 265 King St, Newtown NSW 2042, Australia
