Literary luminaries will discuss intimate and varied influences, offering insights into what shaped them as writers and informed some of today’s important literary works. The international line-up features acclaimed writer and essayist Robert Dessaix (The Pleasures of Leisure), Hannah Kent (The Good People), Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist and memoirist Hisham Matar (The Return), Ian Rankin (bestselling crime writer of the Inspector Rebus novels) and Pulitzer Prize finalist Joy Williams (Ninety-Nine Stories of God). Hosted by ABC RN’s Kate Evans.
