Text Classics: Reclaiming Australian authors of the past

Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon Street, Carlton

Join us for a discussion about the depth and breadth of our literary heritage chaired by Text publisher Michael Heyward. The panel will include authors Sophie Cunningham, Peter Craven and Toni Jordan.

In the space of four years, Text Publishing has released 100 Text Classics, most of them long out of print. This series has brought numerous extraordinary writers from Australia and New Zealand to domestic and international attention, including Elizabeth Harrower, Kenneth Cook, David Ballantyne, Amy Witting and Madeleine St John.

Tickets are $15 and include a copy of one novel from the Text Classics series, as available on the night. Please book here.
