Mum’s the word!

Get ready to spit the dummy, rob the cradle and get in the family way - it’s Naked Girls Reading: The Motherhood Edition! An evening of wicked wives tales, beautiful bedtime stories and motherly love poems sure to pacify your every literary craving. So toddle on down to The Fringe Bar this June for a night of magical, matriarchal storytelling. You’ll be happy to keep the babysitter waiting for this one.

Naked Girls Reading is exactly what is sounds like - completely naked women reading literature aloud. It's a sexy book club, a sapphic slumber party, a sumptuous and scandalous event sure to arouse, educate and entertain all at once. Come along to experience the ancient and beautiful art of storytelling - and also, you know, boobs.

This month’s edition starring:
- Alina Ali-Jacs Siegfried
- Bea Joblin
- Dorothy V Dentata

Hosted, as always by the adorable Hugo Grrrl.

These unclad, clever ladies have picked their favourite bits of iconic maternal literature to recite for you. Expect excerpts of everything from the Ya Ya Sisterhood to Constance Hall, from anti-vaccers to Margaret Mahy, from raunchy housewife erotica to odes to the fabled bliss of a decent night’s sleep. We’ll be sauntering through the literary landscape of all things parental in an evening. It’s a night not to be missed.

Just $20 from Eventfinder
and $35 VIP - front row seats, at a table with a complimentary glass of bubbles. (Perfect for those who might like to sketch the girls throughout the night. Or those who just want to get in the proverbial 'splash zone'.)

BOOK NOW!

And remember, you can’t spell ‘literature’ without ‘t’ and ‘a’!

Please note that latecomers may not be admitted.

And it's not just for the ladies! Our events are open to everyone, from all walks of life, of all genders, all sexualities, all everything. Come along.
