Clare Bowditch: Your Own Kind of Girl
Time Out says
This triple-threat singer-songwriter, actor and author is doing a talk and song sesh about her new memoir
You may know Clare Bowditch from her silky-smooth singing career or her very cool act as Rosanna on the charming rom com series Offspring (which is where her Top 40 hit ‘You Make Me Happy’ first aired), but did you know she’s also a written words wizard? The ARIA Award-winning Melbourne-based artist has produced a memoir named after her insightful and very personal track ‘Your Own Kind of Girl’ from her 2010 album, Modern Day Addiction.
Now she’s setting up in Newtown’s St Stephen’s Anglican Church to discuss the text, chatting with TV, radio and podcast pro Yumi Stynes, and perform a few songs for Sydney fans.
Like her epic pop ballads, the book is being billed as a stark and stirring series of personal histories and revelations. It explores her struggles with anxiety, grief and compulsion, and the flow-on effects of these experiences.
Hosted by charming Newtown bookstore Better Read Than Dead, the November 2 talk will be an intimate storytelling experience that Bowditch and candid book fans won’t want to miss.
