Join Amanda Curtin as she talks about her latest book on a revered WA artist, Kathleen O’Connor of Paris; Dr Michael Levitt on health and happiness with The Happy Bowel; Steve Hawke on his powerful novel Out of Time; Jon Doust on the timely reissue of his compelling memoir Boy on a Wire; poet Annamaria Weldon on her sparkling new collection Stone Mother Tongue; and Bindy Pritchard on her debut short story collection Fabulous Lives.

Our two performances this year feature The West Australian’s Travel Editor Stephen Scourfield and percussionist Steve Richter presenting a new work for spoken word and music, Elsewhere; and operatic baritone Robert Hoffman with pianist Tommaso Pollio performing a German art song in the original language and in translation.
