Newcastle Writers Festival is thrilled to be hosting its first international guest – New Yorker journalist William Finnegan, whose memoir Barbarian Days was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Biography.
Barbarian Days is Finnegan’s immersive memoir of a life spent travelling the world chasing waves. Part old-school adventure story, part social history, the book is an extraordinary exploration of one man’s gradual mastering of an exacting and little-understood art.
Tickets are $25 and are on sale from 9am, Wednesday 5 July. MacLean’s Booksellers will have copies of Barbarian Days for sale and Bill will happily sign copies.Click to Book Tickets
