About the Show
Two Australian literary giants share the stage.
Western Australia’s Miles Franklin Award-winning author Kim Scott’s latest novel Taboo is a shocking genre-bending road trip of a book in which a group of Noongar people travel to the site of a historic massacre – a place considered taboo.
Rightly considered one of Australia’s greatest writers, Helen Garner has delighted, infuriated, confused, charmed and frustrated readers for over 40 years. Her latest book Everywhere I Look is a deeply personal collection of essays spanning 15 years of unexpected moments.
Together Kim Scott and Helen Garner discuss how we can write in this Australia, and is it worth it?
