Locals can prepare to be invigorated and enlightened when Sydney Writers’ Festival livestreams its headline writers and thinkers to the library on May 20 and 21.
It could be by a jarring dissonance, an echo, searing rhetoric or a compelling character never met but never forgotten, according to the Artistic Director of Sydney Writers’ Festival 2022, Michael Williams.
The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Change My Mind’ and talks will include two of the biggest names in Australian literature, Michelle de Kretser, who wrote Scary Monsters, and Christos Tsiolkas, who authored 7 ½, as they speak together with Roanna Gonsalves about their latest books.
Saturday’s programme includes ‘Barrie Cassidy & Friends: Election 2022.’
Local audience members will have the chance to ask questions during live Q&A sessions, sending questions directly to the stage at Carriageworks, Sydney.
Sydney Writers’ Festival will be livestreamed at Broken Hill City Library on Friday, May 20, between 10am and 4:30pm and Saturday, May 21 from 10am to 1pm.
This is a FREE event and the itinerary of speakers may be collected from the library viewed on the library’s website.
