Wheeler Centre: Words & Music with Hannah Kent and Lior - AUS, VIC


The Substation, 5:00PM - 6:00PM, Saturday 26 July 2014

All of our lives have soundtracks. We cherish certain songs that have meant something to us in our lives, and lyrics that have helped us through tough times and inspired us to do better, or think differently. Similarly, most of us have a mental shortlist of seminal books, short stories or poems that have made a difference to us – pieces of writing that have formed who we are.

Who do our favourite writers listen to? What do the musicians we admire love to read? In the second instalment of Words and Music, debut novelist Hannah Kent, whose book Burial Rites has been an international sensation, is joined by ARIA-award-nominated singer/songwriter Lior, whose first albumAutumn Flow is one of the most successful Australian releases in recent history.

Hannah will tell us about two pieces of music that have inspired her work as a writer, while Lior reveals two pieces of writing that have helped shape his musical direction. We eavesdrop on their exchange of treasures, and the conversation that ensues.

This event is hosted by Genevieve Lacey, at the Substation in Newport.

Presented in partnership with The Substation.
