 AT THE HOUSE - Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 May, 10am-4.30pm


Enjoy a rare opportunity to visit Varuna, the National Writers’ House during our weekend program:
• Wander through the gardens and experience the Whispering Trees – an atmospheric sound installation featuring the words of local poets.

• Be inspired by readings and storytelling around a fire-pit in the garden.

AT THE CARRINGTON - Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 May, 10am-7pm


Settle into the art deco elegance of the Carrington’s Grand Dining Room and immerse yourself in two days of readings and conversation with writers… to inspire, stimulate and provoke. This year’s lineup includes both national and international award winning authors and several of the Guardian’s best book picks for 2014, and a compelling 2015 Dr Eric Dark Memorial Lecture.
