In the 90s, national publishers suddenly noticed Brisbane, and Brisbane writers were ready for them. Rebecca Sparrow, herself a notable contributor to contemporary fiction in Brisbane, joins her Birds of a Feather bookclub partner, Jane Sullivan at the RE beer garden – site of many memorable 80s and 90s moments – for an 80s/90s party to revisit the stories, culture and writing life of those times.
