Thomas Keneally at the Melbourne Writers Festival

Schindler's Ark author to take part in three separate events

Thomas Keneally is just one of the authors taking part in the Melbourne Writers Festival, hailed by the Sydney Morning Herald as ‘Australia’s premier literary event’, which runs from 21 to 30 August. Previous attendees include Vikram Seth, Peter Carey, A. S. Byatt and Margaret Atwood. Among this year’s highlights are a keynote address by Bernhard Schlink, author of The Reader, recently adapted as an Academy Award-winning film, and several events with historian Antony Beevor, who will be discussing both the Spanish Civil War and his most recent book D-Day. Thomas Keneally will be taking part in 3 separate events discussing issues surrounding Antipodean literature and specifically talking about his new book Australians, a three-volume history of Australia from prehistory to the present day.

Tickets for many events are still available and full information about the festival is available through this link.

Thomas Keneally’s Booker Prize-winning novel Schindler’s Ark is published by Folio and features illustrations by one of our favourite new artists Tim Laing. To read more click here.

You will soon be able to see more of Tim Laing's superbly evocative work in our illustrated edition of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - a new publication due out in September.
