Sydney Writers' Festival
May 3-6, 2018
The Sydney Writers' Festival is happening earlier than usual this year, and at a new venue (while those lovely wharves are refurbished). I'm delighted to have been asked to chair conversations with Ceridwen Dovey (about In the Garden of the Fugitives) and with Sarah Krasnostein (about The Trauma Cleaner), as well as a panel on "Why We Read" with Glory Edim, Tara Westover, Junot Díaz and Stuart Kells. You'll find full details of these three events – and links back to the rest of the program – here.
