Richard Flanagan in Bendigo

Flanagan is a writer who constantly reinvents himself. Each novel finds a new style and a new subject, from eco-tragedy to contemporary drama, zeitgeist thriller, meditation on desire, or tales of tyrants and artists.

With First Person, Flanagan uses aspects of his own autobiography to mock memoir – and to ask, in our age of ‘fake news’, what is truth and where is freedom.

At Bendigo Town Hall, join one of Australia’s leading literary talents on his exploration into the meaning, and the problem, of truth. In conversation with Cate Kennedy.
