Join us on the first Monday of the month for Hemingway’s Polydactyl Kitten Club & Speakeasy, a poetry spoken word event usually held in the intimate art-deco setting of the Avalon Cocktail Bar, Katoomba but temporarily from the comfort of your home computer.

Our guest this month (Monday 5 October, 7pm) at the Kitten Club was Rawah Arja, whose debut novel The F Team (Giramondo) was published this year.

She worked on her novel at Varuna, in the Blue Mountains, and will be talking about Muslim identity in her work, as well as how she mines personal stories for strong representative characters.
The guest for November is soon to be announced but in the meantime save this date!
