Tracey Spicer is an award-winning journalist who has worked on radio, anchored national news, current affairs and lifestyle programs on television, and is a weekly columnist for Fairfax Media.
She is also a TV presentation trainer, and co-founder of Women in Media.
In her memoir, The Good Girl Stripped Bare, Ms Spicer constructs the barriers facing women in the workplace, and encourages women to “shake off the shackles of the good girl’’.
Ms Spicer will be speaking about her memoir and her life as a well known TV journalist when she drops in to the HJ Daley Library later this month as part of the Campbelltown City Library Service’s visiting authors program.
The visiting authors program gives locals the opportunity to hear first-hand from writers who share their stories and experiences, and this year has already attracted popular authors Peter FitzSimons, Amanda Howard and Candice Fox.
Ms Spicer is scheduled to appear on Tuesday, August 29.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, encouraged the community to go along and hear about Ms Spicer’s 30-year career as a journalist and her views on the treatment of women in the television industry.
The free event starts at 6pm, and bookings are essential.
