Fitzroy Football Club: Great football, Great community, Great culture.

Stories from the outer - book now for Rotary pre-game lunch


The editors of From the Outer: Footy Like Youve Never Heard It, will be the headline act at the Rotary Club pre-game lunch on Saturday 28 May.

Leading sports journalist, driving force behind The Footy Almanac writing community and Fitzroy (or is it Geelong?) tragic, John Harms, will interview Nicole Hayes and Alicia Sometimes, who have pulled together a great book of stories about footy told from diverse perspectives.

The newly launched From the Outer brings together 30 personal stories about Aussie Rules from unexpected voices: those who are female, Indigenous or gay; those with a disability, a foreign accent or even perhaps most dubious of all literary leanings./p>

Nicole Hayes has a history of writing on football but also young adult fiction, having published several books. Alicia Sometimes is a writer, poet, broadcaster and musician, known for her work on 3RRR and the ABC.

Nicole and Alicia are also behind podcast, The Outer Sanctum, which features interviews with some of footballs biggest names along with special segment, The Melee; their take on the big issues in footy.

The lunch is on Saturday 28 May in the Clifton Hill/North Fitzroy Community Bank Branch Community Rooms beforeFitzroy takes on the Monash Blues. The cost is $40 for main course and cheese platter.

Bookings can be made online.
