The program for the Sydney Writers’ Festival came out on Saturday. This year’s opening guest speaker is Chimamanda Ngozi Aidiche, and later, Germaine Greer pops in for an hour’s lecture on ‘The Australian Way: The Influence of Australia and Australians on British Politics and Politicians’.

I’ll be looking to get in a few sessions this year if I see any I’m interested in, but changes in the prog will and do occur. I like the way they’ve initiated a program strand on the website, by topic rather than scrolling through hundreds of events.

As the festival runs during a workweek, I’d have to take time off. Seems the majority of attendees are seniors and university students. Last year I attended  and met Jeanette Winterson (ooo!) (see this picture – JW was Fit!) so it was infinitely worth it.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
