Did you know there are 90 women and 82 men in the #CBRWritersFest line up this year? One of those women is Palestinian refugee, Dr Olfat Mahmoud. She will discuss her book Tears for Tarshiha with journalist Aarti Betigeri. Her inspiring story is about her lifelong fight to return home. Dr Mahmoud is a descendant of the Christian and Muslim people who fled Palestine in the period leading up to and after the founding of the state of Israel in 1948.
One week until tickets go on sale for the third annual Canberra Writers Festival. Sign up for the newsletter for all the updates, news and offers via our website.
If you love a portrait with a story, you'll want to hear this one! In 2015 Andrew Sayers painted Tim Bonyhady’s portrait. Next Friday, Tim presents the Andrew Sayers Memorial Lecture at #cbrwritersfest partner @portraitau about that painting and a remarkable precursor to it, painted 125 years earlier.
Bookings essential
