Here’s some news we got via the folks at Goodreading magazine. Some of you might fancy going – great stories, great wines, lovely country . . . I’m packing my bags now!
Mudgee Readers’ Festival has been established to celebrate the joy of reading.
On Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 August, 12 authors will share their stories in conversation as well as participate in thought-provoking and often hilarious panels.
We strive to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where all readers are welcome regardless of their reading passion. Chat with the authors, ask them a curly question, and learn what makes them tick.
Our stars this year include:
Lucy Neville (travel) * Margareta Osborn (rural romance) * Leslie Cannold (fiction & social commentary) * Hannah Richell (new Australian fiction) * Susan Johnson (Australian fiction) * Susan Duncan (memoir & fiction) * James Roy (young readers) * Gail Jones (Australian fiction) * Paul Ham (military history) * Sulari Gentill (historic crime) * Barry Maitland (crime) * Nigel Marsh (social commentary & humour)
Come along for 10 author/panel presentations, a huge secondhand book fair and dinner with war historian Paul Ham on the Saturday. Sunday will feature four author/panel presentations, local authors in a Local Lines display and a long literary lunch with Nigel Marsh. Author signings and new book sales will take place all weekend.
Tickets on sale now! Session tickets from $10.00.
