Read Like a Girl Breakfast

March 8 @ 6:45 am - 8:30 am

This literary breakfast in celebration of International Women’s Day will feature guest speaker Rebecca Sparrow.   Rebecca is an author, columnist, and reading ambassador.  She will be offering insights and advice for students about friendship, resilience, values, and leadership.  A keen reader herself, Bec will share any great reads she has come across for teenage girls, and will also make some recommendations for mums.

The breakfast will be the first event in our Read Like a Girl program.

Read Like a Girl is a community partnership for the literacy advancement of girls and is a combined endeavour led by Mount Alvernia College and St Rita’s College.  Riverbend Books is a community partner in this project.   This project encapsulates a calendar of reading events aimed at instilling a foundation and love of reading in the college communities and more broadly among girls everywhere.

Ticket sales for this event are now closed.
