Australia's most anticipated and influential literary festival is back, celebrating writers from here and beyond, home and away. Adelaide Writers' Week has long been acknowledged for the quality and diversity of its speakers, writers encountered in the shade of tents and plane trees where an amiable late-summer mood prevails. Here readers can mingle with some of the world's most distinguished literary figures in a meeting place between a memorial garden for women and a colonial parade ground, on Kaurna country.
In 2010 Adelaide Writers' Week will build on traditions that have evolved over four decades, bringing together writers and readers in a series of stimulating readings, debates and exchanges. Old friends, writers known and respected, will be there alongside new writers with new writing. The popular mix of panel discussions, 'Meet the Author' sessions, lectures and readings will be included.
This time around you will hear writers from around the world: the United Kingdom, the United States, Brazil, Germany, India and Spain. These meetings will provide opportunities for reflections on our place in the world, taking us beyond Adelaide into the world at large.
