Listen: 2019 Program Announcement: Annabel Crabb and Michaela McGuire

Hear Annabel Crabb and Michaela McGuire chat about the 2019 Festival program, pick and choose their personal highlights and make some handy recommendations for fans of fiction, non-fiction, history, society and politics, and more.

More than 400 international and Australian writers will address the Festival's theme, Lie to Me, and explore the ways that writing can be used to deceive others in an increasingly post-truth world, the lies that we tell ourselves and each other, and those we collectively tell as a country. The program features Simon Schama, Meg Wolitzer, George Saunders, Susan Orlean, Andrew Sean Greer, Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah, Fatima Bhutto, Rachel Kushner, Brittney Cooper, Alexander Chee, Jenny Erpenbeck and more.

SWF podcasts are also available on iTunes and Spotify.
