Event Description

Bayside Libraries are thrilled to partner with the Melbourne Writers Festival to present Chris Womersley in conversation with Elizabeth McCarthy at our Brighton branch.

Chris Womersley has followed up his bestselling novel Cairo with The Diplomat, ‘a gem of a novel, full of all the good stuff – love, art, failure, heartbreak’ (Emily Bitto). Join him as he chats about his powerful story of love and recovery, and the fine line between self-destruction and redemption.

Elizabeth McCarthy is a radio producer and presenter. She reviews books on 3RRR and the ABC. She was a 2021 Stella Prize judge and was convenor of the 2019 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Fiction. She interviews writers and artists at festival events across Australia.

Notes & Requirements

We strongly recommend all venue staff, audience, volunteers, artists and their publicists wear masks during the event (with the exception of artists while they’re on-stage) to provide an as safe as possible environment for everyone. This approach is being replicated across the Melbourne Writers Festival events.
