Sydney Writers' Festival - Live and Local 2021

Sydney Writers’ Festival is returning to Armidale Regional Council Libraries in 2021!
One of Australia’s best-loved forums for literature, ideas and storytelling, Sydney Writers’ Festival will be streaming its headline events from Carriageworks in Sydney direct to the Armidale War Memorial Library and Guyra L.T. Starr Memorial Library on Friday 30th April and Saturday 1st May.  
Prepare to be engaged by conversations, debates and discussions, as the Festival brings the world’s finest authors to your libraries in real time. As well as hearing new ideas from great thinkers, audiences will have the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions at each event, sending questions direct to the stage.
Be part of Live & Local, streamed live by Sydney Writers’ Festival and delivered locally to your libraries.

Tickets are limited so make sure you book early to ensure you don't miss out. Tickets are free.
