The Wheeler Centre at The Toff: Bedtime Stories

Life was better when you were a child. For one thing, people read you stories. You were put to sleep with Dr Seuss, Eric Carle and Enid Blyton. There were pictures. There was sweetness and wonder.

It can be like that again. At Bedtime Stories, a storytelling evening created by Saturday Paper editor Erik Jensen, Australia’s best writers retell their books, as if for children.

Find out how Lorelei Vashti’s Dress, Memory, would have been written differently for tots. Hear Romy Ash’s soothing retelling of Floundering, or snuggle up with revealing macroeconomic fables from George Megalogenis, Australia’s Second Chance. Lullabies? Singer songwriter Laura Jean is here to help.
