More info: Clunes Booktown Festival

Clunes Booktown Festival returns this 3 – 5 May, with panel discussions and a bookshop that stretches the entire main street of Clunes. The two-day festival will delve into questions around our political climate, slowing down at home and modern day feminism.

Some of Australia’s favourite authors are heading to Clunes for discussions and events, including Tony Birch, Jane Caro, and Alice Pung. There’s also a kids book village which will host writing workshops and other events. The schedule is jam-packed, but our selections would be the panel discussions ‘Blaze a Tale: The Power of a Story’ on Saturday 4 May at 11:30-12:30pm, and ‘The State of Writing’ on Sunday 4 May at 2:30-3:30pm.
