Debi Enker, Fiona Wood and Tom Ryan

Standards of fiction writing and choices of TV viewing have never been higher. With a range of excellent TV options at our fingertips, binge watching has become de rigueur with series addiction engendering the same fervour that used to be accorded a great book. This session will explore what novels and TV can and can’t do for us. Join TV critic and columnist Debi Enker and young adult fiction author, and former screenwriter, Fiona Wood, in what promises to be one lively discussion. The discussion will be moderated by Tom Ryan, who has been a regular contributor to arts publishing for three decades, and whose new book Fred Schepisi: Interviews will be published in April by the University Press of Mississippi.
