Sydney Writers’ Festival 2015


‘Everything has been figured out, except how to live.’ — Jean-Paul Sartre.

This year the theme of Sydney Writers’ Festival is How to Live? Where do we find a sense of purpose and how should we best live our lives?  In this year’s program over 400 writers will help us make sense of the world, exploring ideas of happiness, grief, spirituality, ageing, and mortality.
