Auckland Libraries brings the Fun!!

Keen to see the library buildings used for more than just reading and storage? Want to take back your local library with an event that makes you THINK?
Join Auckland Libraries as they question, challenge and celebrate sex and sexuality on the page, stage and screen with a special series of thought-provoking events for over-18s.
Dark night celebrates diversity across the borders of gender, sexual identity, and sexual orientation. I for one would love a strong feminist group in the audience, especially for the Thursday night panel, and the Dark Night cabaret, where audience input have the capacity to mould the tone of the evening.
The events are as follows, further info can be found at the Auckland Libraries Website.
I will see you there! - Scube.

Shame, a film.
Academy Cinema (next to Auckland city Library)
Auckland Library's events series "Dark night" launches with a special screening of Shame, a portrait of sex addiction starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. Introduced beforehand by a panel discussion with psychologist Dr. Pani Farvid.
