Writing The Past
Just a quick note to say I’m speaking at the 2010 History Festival on Saturday (13 March). This year’s Festival, entitled Writing The Past,which is being held at the NSW Writers’ Centre, is focussed on the complexities of representing the past, and features writers and historians such as Delia Falconer, Gabrielle Carey, Robert Gray and Mark McKenna.
Full details of the program are available on the NSW Writers’ Centre website, or you can download the program. I’m on at 3:15pm, along with the impossibly charming Tom Gilling, my old pal Ashley Hay and Catherine Jinks. Given all three of them know more than a bit about the questions thrown up by the Festival’s title it should be an interesting event.
Hopefully I’ll see you there.
