Enjoy a literary road trip with Little Fictions, travelling from Alice Springs to Gundagai by way of Byron Bay and the Gong. You’ll visit Michael Giacometti’s cursed outback town and hitch a ride with Julie Chevalier’s talking cow. You’ll meet a possum on the Seacliff Bridge and a maverick fast-food chain operator, and spend a sordid evening at an iconic Australian coastal destination. Join host Adam Norris and actors Kate Fraser, Joel Horwood and Eleni Schumacher for a great night of storytelling.
