This May, join us as we welcome guests from Sydney Writers’ Festival to Melbourne.

You’ll meet genre-hopping writer Jonathan Lethem, find a clearer path to happiness with Paul Dolan, explore counterinsurgency and ethnography with David Kilcullen and Robert Manne, and catch up with international children’s publishing sensation David Walliams — often dubbed ‘the new Roald Dahl’.

Plus: hear from literary magician David Mitchell, delve into various beginnings with legendary playwright and novelist Michael Frayn, learn about the turning points in master biographer Claire Tomalin’s own life, and examine textual intimacy with Booker-winning poet and author Ben Okri.

Presented in partnership with Sydney Writers’ Festival.
