We are thrilled to announce that Helen Garner, Ash Grunwald, Archie Roach and Sally Rugg will be among 150 writers attending next year’s festival from April 3 to 5. Their timely books centre on the personal and political. The full program will be launched at a special evening event on February 20 and tickets will go on sale the next day. Stay tuned for more program announcements early next year. The festival team wishes you a safe and happy Christmas. May there be plenty of time for reading.
