Sydney Writers’ Festival 2018

Session: Family Portrait

Staying cover_final_TW

Friday, 4th May, 1.30pm. Seymour Centre, Reginald Theatre, CHIPPENDALE

“Composing a memoir is a deeply personal process, one made more complicated when writing about family and friends. In this session, three memoirists consider the opportunities and risks in telling true stories about loved ones. Rosie Waterland’s Every Lie I’ve Ever Told details her family’s reaction to her bestselling debut memoir, The Anti-Cool Girl. Jessie Cole explores loss and grief in the beautifully written Staying. Tara Westover’s Educated explores her escape from a survivalist end-of-days childhood. They speak to ABC Radio Sydney’s Richard Glover.”
