About The Event
For Ailie Banks, a bitch is someone who stands firm and speaks their mind in the face of sexist rhetoric. They don't filter themselves for the comfort of others and they don't give a damn about meeting societal expectations.
Join Ailie for the launch of The Book of Bitch, an unapologetic, illustrated & alphabetical tribute to the word sneered through clenched teeth at those who refuse to shrink in the face of oppression. This book shows once and for all that every bitch is multifaceted, every bitch is human and every bitch deserves to be celebrated.
Ailie is in-conversation with award-winning author Bri Lee.
"I want to be an Ailie Banks kind of bitch. ... This book just put 'tenacious' back in my vocabulary and on my to-do list." - Bri Lee, author of Eggshell Skull.
