This coming Thursday I'm off to Sydney for the Sydney Writers Festival.
You can read about my Philosophy in the Garden lecture, conversation with Deborah Levy, and panels here.
And I'll post some reflections and photos here, and on Twitter.
But in the meantime, here are a couple of columns on the value of literary festivals:
- 'A healthy civilisation needs writers - and readers' (The Canberra Times)
- 'The gift of literary moonshine' (The West Australian)
