The Queensland football community is invited to attend the upcoming Brisbane Writers Festival for a panel discussion on Never Say Die: The Hundred-Year Overnight Success of Australian Women’s Football.
Fiona Crawford, Lee McGowan and Rae Dower will discuss and celebrate the history of the women’s game on Sunday, 9 May at the Queensland State Library.
Never Say Die is a gripping story that digs through the archives to uncover generations of women’s football – its players, fans, and the game they love. The book unravels the story of amateur women kicking a ball 100 years ago, to Australia’s national women’s team becoming one of the best in the world.
Co-authors Fiona Crawford and Lee McGowan will provide an insight into their research and the stories uncovered in the development of Never Say Die, while QAS Mentor and Junior Matildas Head Coach Rae Dower will join the panel to share her experiences from her time as a young female player to travelling the world representing Queensland and Australia.
The Brisbane Writers Festival runs from Friday, 7 May to Sunday, 9 May and invites local writers to discuss ideas, revelations and reflections with their audience.
