Sydney Writers’ Festival Live and Local

Sydney Writers’ Festival is Australia’s largest forum celebrating books and ideas in the southern hemisphere. The Festival brings the world’s finest authors and esteemed thinkers to Wollongong and Shellharbour in real time through the Live & Local project.

Streamed LIVE by Sydney Writers’ Festival and delivered locally by Wollongong Town Hall and Shellharbour Civic Centre on Saturday 5th May (Wollongong) and Sunday 6th May (Shellharbour), Live & Local offers regional and national audiences access to new ideas from great minds, with the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions at each event by sending questions direct to the Sydney stage.

Join us as we celebrate books, challenge ideas, and interrogate power.
