Matthew Flinders Anglican College warmly invites you to an enjoyable and informative evening on the topic of raising teenage girls on Wednesday, 9 August at 6pm.

Renowned author and journalist Madonna King will talk about her book “Being 14: Helping Fierce Teens Become Awesome Women“, which helps parents to understand how young women are feeling and how to support them to navigate the “tricky teen years”.

During the evening, Madonna will present the findings of her research, based on interviews with 200 14-year-old girls across the country, and on conversations with successful school principals, psychologists, CEOs, police, and neuroscientists. A Q&A session will follow.

The audience will also have the opportunity to purchase Madonna’s book and to have it signed.

Complimentary tea and coffee will be served.

About the Author:

Madonna King is one of Australia’s most accomplished journalists, having worked at senior levels of NewsCorp and the ABC (where Madonna presented the Mornings program in Brisbane for six years). Madonna writes for Fairfax’s Good Weekend, writes a highly successful weekly column for the Brisbane Times and has a regular radio spot on Brisbane’s 4BC. She has written six books, all defined by her skilful reporting and her ability to get people to talk in depth. Madonna is also a parent of two girls who are fast approaching the magic age of 14. With her personal and professional contacts, built up over 30 years, Madonna has tapped into a rich network to find the voices that make this book important – most critically, 14-year-old girls.
