untitled Literary Festival

[untitled]: our writers, readers and stories

Stonnington Libraries are set to celebrate the writers, readers and stories of Stonnington with a series of author talks, readings, panel discussions and a writing competition in this year’s [untitled] Literary Festival, to be held from 16 – 20 November 2017.

This year’s program features author and self-described ‘television prankster’ John Safran in conversation with broadcaster Sally Warhaft about Safran’s second book, Depends What You Mean By Extremism: Going Rogue with Australian Deplorables, and the rise of political extremism in Australia and around the world.

Other highlights include:

  • Writer, journalist and former political staffer Jamila Rizvi will discuss her book, Not Just Lucky, with feminist thinker and broadcaster Clementine Ford
  • Novelist, poet and translator Lia Hills will discuss her latest novel, The Crying Place, a haunting story of loss, place and the contradictions that lie at the heart of Australia
  • Comedian, music nerd and children’s author Alan Brough will chat about what makes for a hilarious children’s story, and
  • Many more lively talks and performances.

[untitled] literary festival: our writers, readers and stories will launch on 16 November 2017.

The full festival program will be revealed on 2 October.  Bookings will open at 10am on 6 October 2017.
