Keynote Address #1
Eight Writers: Eight Ways to Be Human
Celebrate the launch of the Melbourne Writers Festival 2010 as we join writers on a unique and creative journey to explore ‘Eight Ways to be Human’.
Eight of our festival guests, comprising novelists, scientists, philosophers, memoir writers and playwrights, will share readings from their work, which will explore the eternal question of what really makes us human.
Barry Dickins, Norman Doidge, Jostein Gaarder, Cate Kennedy, Fiona McGregor, Alex Miller, Nadifa Mohamed and Brenda Walker bring us unexpected insights in an evening laced with wit, sex, tragedy and humour.
Don’t miss this amazing line-up – the perfect way to launch ten days of fabulous literary happenings.
This event will be Auslan interpreted.
