The Mildura Writers’ Festival brings together some of Australia’s best writers in an intimate, winter program of workshops, lectures and discussion forums. Join Sian Prior (Shy: A Memoir) at the 2018 festival.
Richard will present at 12:00pm and 1:15pm.
Sue Wiliams, Aoife Clifford and Kerry McGinnis talk to Hazel Edwards about how crime can stalk dusty country roads as readily as the mean streets of the big cities.
Live and Let Fry is the third book by Sue Williams to feature Cass Tuplin, proprietor of the Rusty Bore Takeaway (and unlicensed private investigator). What starts out as an investigation into dumped rats, quickly turns into a missing person’s case. Before you can say ‘unauthorised investigation’, Cass is back on the case.
In 1788 a young woman raised in the vicarage of an English village married a handsome, but penniless, army officer. In any Austen novel that would be the end of the story, but for the real-life woman who became an Australian farming entrepreneur and played an integral part in establishing Australia’s wool industry, it was just the beginning. In Elizabeth Macarthur: A Life at the Edge of the World, Michelle Scott Tucker shines a light on an often-overlooked aspect of Australia’s history.
Join Michelle in conversation about her book at the Southern Highlands Writers Festival.
