Stranger than fiction

Write Around the Murray

Event Date: 7 September 2018
Author / Presenters: Chris Hammer, Tony Wright

In 2010, journalist Chris Hammer came to Write Around the Murray with his non-fiction work, The River: A Journey through the Murray-Darling Basin. He now returns with Scrublands, a mystery-thriller set in a ‘fictional, drought-affected Riverina town’. Scrublands has been sold to UK and US publishers amidst a great flurry of excitement and has already been optioned for television.

Tony Wright, associate editor and special writer at Fairfax, is one of Australia’s most respected journalists. His columns cover social and political issues with reflective and historical insight.

Tony and Chris tease at the threads between fact and fiction in a free-wheeling conversation about journalism, fiction, and reporting on life.

6pm – 7pm, Albury LibraryMuseum, $5
