Newcastle's own literary festival is happening
from the evening of Friday 5 April until mid Sunday arvo, and I will be there for the following sessions:
Saturday 11.15–12.15 in the Lockup Gallery, talking about Crossing Over: Why YA isn't just for teens with Alexa Moses and Felicity Pullman (Kaz Delaney will be wrangling us).
Sunday 1.30–2.30 in the City Hall (Hunter Room), where I'll be Dreaming Australia with Jack Dann and Janeen Webb, and our chair Russell Blackford, celebrating all things Australian and odd. (That's quite a collocation of silver foxes we'll have there!)
And I'm currently poring over the program
of other goodies on offer. If you're anywhere Newcastle, you should come on down!
