This year, in partnership with the State Library of NSW, Sydney Writers’ Festival presents a reimagined digital iteration of the Festival’s beloved Suburban and Regional Library Program.
Enter the minds behind your most borrowed books with these events live-streamed from the State Library of NSW to your local library. Featuring award-winning and bestselling Australian authors Kate Grenville, Anita Heiss and Candice Fox, in conversation each evening from Tuesday to Thursday of Festival week.
Some participating libraries will be hosting ‘Watch at the Library’ events. All three conversations are available to stream from the comfort of your home too. Please check the event listing via your local library’s web page below.
