Libraries ACT has announced that it has brought the Live & Local Sydney Writers’ Festival to Canberra for the first time.

Acclaimed as one of Australia’s most loved forums for literature, ideas and storytelling, Sydney’s Writers’ Festival is streaming its headline events from Sydney to Canberra on this week and the weekend from today (25 -28 May).

Libraries ACT are to share the streaming hosts for all the days of the festival!

With the Festival to appear in Life Lab in Woden Library, Dickson Library and Gungahlin Library, Libraries ACT recommends readers prepare to be invigorated and engaged by conversations, debates and discussions featuring some of the world’s finest writers and thinkers.

“Audiences can also participate in live Q&A sessions at each event, sending questions straight to the Sydney stage,” the organisers said.

“Join us for Live & Local 2023, streamed live by Sydney Writers’ Festival and delivered locally to Libraries ACT,” it said.

The Writers Festival Program can be accessed at this PS News link and registration for any of the events can be made at this PS News link.
