Look Who’s Talking Sydney Writers Festival Live and Local

Maitland City Library brings some of the world’s finest authors to town via live streaming of headline events from the Sydney Writers Festival 3-5 May. Participate in one of Australia’s best-loved forums for literature, ideas and storytelling live, local and free at Maitland’s iconic Town Hall.

Friday’s sessions include popular ABC broadcaster Leigh Sales, Archibald Prize winning artist Ben Quilty in conversation with Julian Burnside, Tom Switzer and Graeme Gill debating the legitimacy of the Russian threat, The Chaser’s Chris Taylor investigating why people lie and journalist and public intellectual David Marr discussing his chronicle of our times, My Country.
