Bestselling author Annie Proulx was in town recently as a guest of the Melbourne Writers Festival and the Wheeler Centre. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News was in town to promote Bird Cloud, a memoir of childhood, her father and Wyoming.

In this video of her wide-ranging conversation with the Wheeler Centre’s Michael Williams, she discusses books, reading, the “bibliothèque” installed in her new home, her archaeological discoveries on her Wyoming property, and how writing is like “wiggling small things out of the unknown and onto the page”.
