Postcard from Brisbane

Hello from the beautiful capital of Queensland! I just finished my first panel of the Brisbane Writers Festival — “We Need to Talk About America” with the articulate David Vann and John de Graaf. After great questions from chair Libby Burke and a lively discussion, we darted downstairs to meet readers and sign copies of our books. Up next for me at the festival: “A Little Bit of Magic” with Joanne Harris, Kate Forsyth and Katherine Lyall-Watson, and “Bookselling’s Bright Future” with Fiona Stager, Janet Kieseker, and Chris Flynn, who I already know from Melbourne is a fabulous discussion leader.

Somewhere along the way, I might sneak in a visit with some kangaroos and koalas, too.

    Sounds fantastic. Bet the weather is good up in Queensland. Hope you can get to some of the stunning beahes. If you have a spare day and night, you may like to pop in to Bryon Bay? It’s a little further south but not too far and gorgeous. xf
