The Sydney Writers’ Festival program was launched on Friday. To be held in the third week of May, you can review the program here.
Big name international authors include Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Anita Desai. I’m looking forward to hearing the thoughts of James Wood, famous literary critic at The New Yorker magazine, and attending sessions on reading the classics, with Wood, Geordie Williamson and Jane Gleeson-White. There’s plenty of strong Aussie authors appearing, including Michelle de Krester, Gillian Mears, and Graeme Simsion amongst many others. There’s also a session on Pride and Prejudice, marking the 200-year anniversary of its publication.
As always, there’s much on offer and many clashes! Looks like being a great few days.
I hope to see you in the crowd!
