History & Place

Stories about the interior lives of women have resonated with readers for centuries. How do contemporary writers evoke such tales through history and place – and why are they so enduring? Award-winning writers Tracy Chevalier (At the Edge of the Orchard) and Hannah Kent (The Good People) discuss.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 21 July. This session is able to be booked on a Festival Pass.
