Sydney Writers Festival: Growing Up In Country Australia with Rick Morton & Contributors
Too often our notions of life outside Australia’s capital cities are that it is monochrome and homogenous. The new anthology Growing Up In Country Australia offers a fresh, modern, and at times surprising look at country life today, bringing together the perspectives of established and emerging writers. Join the collection’s editor, prize-winning One Hundred Years of Dirt author Rick Morton, as he speaks with contributors Farz Edraki, Bridie Jabour and Benjamin Riley. Together, they discuss challenges such as drought, fire and isolation, as well as the joy, adventure and beauty of growing up outside our capital cities.
Date: Thursday 19 May
Venue: Carriageworks, Bay 20, 245 Wilson Street Eveleigh
