Writers to share their love of reading

Kiama Readers Festival Logo Colour Hi ResMore detail is emerging about the inaugural Kiama Readers Festival, on 14-16 October.

Kiama’s Head Librarian Michelle Hudson says the difference between a readers’ festival and a writers’ festival is that the emphasis in the sessions is about sharing a love of reading rather giving insights into the writing process.

Fittingly, the Festival will be launched by prize-winning writer and philosopher Damon Young, author of The Art of Reading. Other authors who will be speaking at the Festival are Kate Llewellyn, Rhys Crawley, Frank Moorehouse, Noel Bleddoe, Richard Glover, Karen Viggers, Kooshyar Karimi, Kelly Doust, Meg Keneally, David Dyer, Debra Oswald, Michael Molkentin, Jim Haynes and Ursula Dubosarsky.

The planned events include the launch at the Library on Friday night, a full day of talks at the Pavilion on Saturday, a Festival dinner on Saturday night and a day focused on children at the Library on Sunday.
