My partner and I are heading to Sydney tomorrow for the Sydney Writers' Festival - an event I really look forward to each year.
Some of the events I am planning to see/hear are:
Event 145 - My Brilliant Debut - Authors Kirsten Tranter, Steven Amsterdam and Patrick Allington all speaking about their first publishing deals.
Event 159 - Yiyun Li - I have not read anything by this author as yet but her first novel, The Vagrants, sounds amazing.
Event 173 - No Country For Young Women - The description of this event from the SWF site:
Can a young female writer thrive in our newly retro Mad Men world? Young Australian authors Kirsten Tranter, Emily Maguire and Karen Hitchcock will discuss.
Event 188 - The Big Reading A group of authors including Natasha Solomons and Susan Wyndham read from their work.
I'm really looking forward to the weekend and sharing it with you all when I get back.
