I love the Brisbane Writers Festival (BWF); it’s my favourite time of year. Brisbane usually turns on perfect spring weather, and a bunch of great writers are in town. It’s a time for strolling, listening, and thinking — refreshing your passion for writing and reading.
I always enjoy gazing at the quandongs that surround the State Library, growing taller every year. Their bright red leaves among the green. There’s time for lunch or a coffee out on the lawns, a chance to catch up with friends.
This year, I’m heading ‘Into the Woods’ with Anna Krien and Damon Young to talk about the role of the natural world in activism, philosophy and identity. Saturday, 7th Sept @ 2.30 :http://bwf.org.au/2013-program/bwf-2013-program/
I’m also looking forward to seeing Ruth Ozeki, Phillipp Meyer, and local, Robert Hoge talk about his great new memoir, Ugly (Hachette).
See you there!
