The annual New Norcia Writers' Festival will be taking place on Saturday 24 August, 2019.
Like its predecessors, the emphasis is on literature as performance, with author readings accompanying each session.
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.
