How to watch Richard Flanagan: The Living Sea of Waking Dreams

Thank you for booking a ticket to our conversation between author Richard Flanagan and journalist Jennifer Byrne. We hope you’ll enjoy the event. 

When to watch

Firstly, the event date and time – 7pm–8pm, Tuesday 29 September – marks the premiere of this pre-recorded interview. It’s also the day The Living Sea of Waking Dreams is released, so it’s a good opportunity to watch at the same time with other people and discuss it afterwards. If that’s not a convenient time for you, though, the video will be available on demand until 9pm AEST, Tuesday 13 October.

What you’ll need

This event will screen on the Vimeo streaming platform. It’s compatible with most modern web browsers, computers, tablets and phones – see a full list of supported systems on the Vimeo website.
