Living MemorySun 7 May, 1.30pm
State Library Village Roadshow Theatrette
Join three of the country’s most talented storytellers, André Dao (Anam), Nam Le (The Boat) and Maria Tumarkin (Axiomatic and Traumascapes), as they come together for an illuminating conversation about their crafts and careers. They reflect on the common themes of their works, which have lent singular insight into questions of inheritance, memory and the role of the past in our present, and discuss how they have explored these through various forms of storytelling, including essays, short stories and longer pieces of fiction.
