Sydney Writers' Festival, Live and Local

Sydney Writers' Festival, Live and Local
Armidale Regional Council War Memorial Library

26 - 28 May 2017

After the success of Live & Local in 2016, the Sydney Writers’ Festival will return to Armidale for the weekend 26 – 28 May.

One of Australia’s best-loved forums for literature, ideas and storytelling, the Sydney Writers’ Festival will stream its headline events from Roslyn Packer Theatre in Walsh Bay direct to cities and towns throughout the country. The Armidale venue will be the newly opened War Memorial Library.

So prepare to be stimulated and engaged by conversations, debates and discussions as the Festival brings the world’s finest authors to Armidale in real time.

As well as hearing new ideas from great thinkers, audiences can participate in Q&A sessions at each event, sending questions direct to the Sydney stage via a live feed.

Live & Local will be streamed live by the Sydney Writers’ Festival and facilitated by the the Armidale Regional Council and the New England Writers’ Centre.
