The program for the Sydney Writers' Festival was released today and tickets go on sale tomorrow. I plan to catch Alex Miller talking about his latest novel, Lovesong, and former broadcast journalist, Jana Wendt at the Opera House on her new book Nice Work. US writer Lionel Shriver, author of the harrowing We Need to Talk About Kevin, turns her hand to homeland affairs in a discussion session tagged We Need to Talk About America, which is bound to be lively (and hopefully less depressing than the book). Also keen to get along to one or two of the Reading Musters which have a line-up of local novelists.
