Garry Disher at the Wheeler Centre (VIC)

It’s no mystery that Australian crime writers are on some kind of a rampage – some kind of a spree – filling bookshops, racing up bestseller lists and taking over big and small screens across the globe. Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies has been a major TV hit. The series’ executive producer, Reese Witherspoon, is now working on a movie adaptation of Jane Harper's The Dry. Local audiences have been glued to the Jack Irish ABC TV series and to podcasts such as Trace and The Teacher’s Pet, and the last few years have seen a juggernaut of local book sales for established names and newcomers alike.

At the Wheeler Centre's Hit List: Australian Crime Writing event, you’ll hear from some of the stars of Australian crime writing; writers of thrillers, true-crime investigations and classic whodunnits. Each writer will share a short reflection or provocation on the crime genre, followed by a panel discussion. Our speakers will discuss thrilling sub-genres, ethics and aesthetics, the rise of ‘outback noir’ and more. They might even reveal how and where they’re planning to strike next.
