Just a quick heads-up to say that if you’re in Melbourne I’ll be appearing at a special event at The Lindrum Hotel on Flinders Street at 6:30pm on Thursday 14 May. The event is part of the new MGallery Literary Collection series, which is being run by Accor Hotels in conjunction with the Wheeler Centre, and includes dinner and canapés. Tickets are $65 or $55 for members, and are available online. It’s a pretty amazing location and it should be a great night.
I’m about to head off to Adelaide Writers’ Week, but excitingly I’ll also be doing a series of events in Sydney and Melbourne over the next month.
The first is on at 6:00 for 6:30pm on Thursday 12 March at Gleebooks, where I’ll be in conversation with James Tierney. If you’re interested you can read James’ incredibly generous review of Clade over at Kill Your Darlings, otherwise you can book tickets by calling 02 9660 2333 or via the Gleebooks website.
The second is at Stanton Library in North Sydney at 1:00pm on Tuesday 17 March. Again you can book tickets by calling the library on 02 9936 8400 or through their website.
Later in the month I’ll be appearing at two events in Melbourne as well. At 7:15pm on Tuesday 24 March I’ll be appearing at the Wheeler centre with Jane Bryony Rawson, and Alice Robinson on a panel about ‘New Dystopias: Climate Change and Fiction’. I’ve not read Alice’s book yet but I’ve read Jane’s, A Wrong Turn at the Office of Unmade Lists and it’s a terrific book that grapples with the questions of climate change and how you might write about it in innovative and very creative ways, so I think it’ll be a great evening. Tickets are free and can be booked through the Wheeler Centre website.
And finally, on Wednesday 25 March I’ll speaking at Readings Carlton at 6:30pm. Tickets are free and available via the Readings website.
If you’re in Sydney or Melbourne it’d be great to see you at one of them. If not I’ll have some news about events elsewhere soon. And hopefully I’ll get a few other things up here sometimes soon.
