A feast for readers and writers
The programme for the 2OO6 Melbourne Writers Festival is now out with this morning's Age newspaper. It will run from 25 August to 3 September. The programme is also online here.
At first glance, these are the stand-outs: Tim Flannery (The Weather Makers) will give the keynote address on global warming, Helen Caldicot on nuclear weapons, Dava Sobel (Longitude etc) on the stories behind science, and music and musicians at the Festival!
I really hope to attend as much of the Festival as I can, and post live reports here where possible! Stay tuned.
