Australia’s biggest literary event is almost upon us once again: the Sydney Writers Festival. This year more than 400 Australian and 60 international writers will be converging on Walsh Bay, and other venues across Sydney.
You’ve no doubt already heard about a few of the big draws: Gloria Steinem, Jonathan Franzen, Jeanette Winterson, Anna Funder, and Paula Hawkins. Joining me to talk about some of the events these and other SWF authors are participating in, and to explain the festival theme of ‘Bibliotherapy’ was artistic director Jemma Birrell.
The Sydney Writers Festival is on from 16-22 May. Find the full program on the SWF website.
