Live & Local

Sydney Writers’ Festival is Australia’s largest celebration of books and ideas, bringing the world’s finest authors and esteemed thinkers together for insightful and exhilarating conversations and discussions.

The Sydney Writers’ Festival Live & Local program offers a free livestream of Festival sessions to libraries and community centres across regional Australia to share directly with their audiences. 

Narrabri is a small regional town and these events are a great opportunity for the community to attend literary and cultural events without great expense.
