Reading and Conversation
Peter Carey
Hal Wake

We celebrate our tenth annual festival and the 50th anniversary of the Booker Prize with a very special guest, acclaimed Australian writer Peter Carey, twice-winner of the prestigious international prize. He presents his powerful new novel, A Long Way From Home, which employs the conceit of a light-hearted road trip to examine Australia's colonial past.

Join Peter and Hal Wake for an in-depth conversation, interspersed with readings, in which Peter reflects on his writing career and what has brought him now to write about racism, genocide, and Australia's historical treatment of Indigenous Australian peoples.
