Bendigo Writers Festival

Friday, August 7 opens 2015’s Bendigo Writers Festival. This year the theme is ‘The Good Life’ – a collection of ideas from eating well to getting the most out of reading and writing, plus a few other things thrown in for good measure. Guests include John Clarke, Robert Dessaix, Brenda Niall, Amanda Lohrey, Max Gillies, Susan Butler, Latika Bourke, Nam Le, Tim Entwisle, Cate Kennedy, Graeme Simsion, Kris Olsson and Lyndon Terracini. In all, more than 70 events have been planned for the festival. A highlight, however, is sure to be opening night, featuring a conversation between Bob Brown and Melbourne Writers Festival director Lisa Dempster. More through
