Sydney Writers Festival Event - Stephen Carroll in conversation with Linda Funnell
601 High Street, Penrith, NSW, 2750, Australia
2nd May 2019
Sydney Writers Festival is once again heading west for Penrith Library's premium author event of the year! With multi-award winning author Steven Carroll in conversation with Linda Funnell, literary critic, copywriter, editor and publisher, this is a unique opportunity for Penrith’s bookworms to get up close and personal with these literary legends. Steven Carroll is a critically acclaimed novelist, who has been awarded the Miles Franklin Award, international awards, and the Prime Minister’s Literary Award. In this event he will discuss ‘The Year of the Beast’, the final book in his ‘Glenroy’ series. With the background of The Great War raging, and the landscape of a city weighed down by social tension, ‘The Year of the Beast’ is a rhythmic, insistent and pulsing novel that can’t be put down. Linda Funnell, who has long been a fixture in the Australian publishing and editing industry, brings with her a wealth of insight and illuminates the conversation with the wisdom that has come with her intimate knowledge of the Australian literary landscape.
