things to try this week
Secondary teacher Megan Street wrote Well, This Is Growing Up, a book with advice and personal stories for young women and girls, after losing a friend to suicide. Ten per cent of the profits go to Beyondblue. Out now, $24.95; sidharta.com.au.
Director Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck follows the stories of two children in two eras who run away from home – one to find their idol (played by Julianne Moore), and the other to solve a mystery. In cinemas nationwide on December 14.
It’s hard to go wrong with high tea, so stuff those stockings with gift cards from the QVB’S The Tea Room. There’s tea for two (and maybe a cheeky glass of bubbly) and gift packs filled with favourites, including Darjeeling and Paris Vanilla; thetearoom.com.au.
