Perth Writers Festival

Three weeks to go until the Perth Writers Festival

I felt all squirmy with pleasure when I read their description of me as ‘much-loved’. I am a sucker for a compliment.

Here’s what I’ll be getting up to:

EVENT SCHEDULE Perth Writers Festival
School Sessions

Vultures Gate with Kirsty Murray
Much-loved Australian writer Kirsty Murray’s latest’s novel, Vulture’s Gate, is a gripping,
fast-paced adventure. With a vividly realised setting in futuristic Sydney, it is a provocative
page-turner with a chilling sociological twist. This riveting read explores ideas originating in
popular science, including biotechnology and genetic science, as well as timeless questions
about courage and survival.
