Gertrude, Alice and the Flight of the Mind
In case you’re at a loose end over the next couple of weeks, I’m doing two events. The first is a literary breakfast this Friday (16 October) at Gertrude and Alice Bookstore here in Bondi Beach. Tickets are $12, and bookings can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 02 9130 5155. I’m going to be talking about my most recent novel, The Resurrectionist (all that darkness and death seem so appropriate for breakfast in Bondi, after all).
And the weekend after next (24-25 October) I’m one of a very impressive line-up of writers appearing at the National Library of Australia’s Flight of the Mind Conference in Canberra. Held over two days, the Conference is designed to explore a range of questions about creativity and the writing imagination, and speakers include Alex Miller, Peter Goldsworthy and Sophie Cunningham. I’m speaking on Sunday morning at 10:00am, and given what a big part of my life this site’s become over the last year, I’m planning to speak about the way technology is altering both what and how we write. The full Conference program is available here, and bookings can be made by emailing email@example.com or calling 02 6262 1122.
