Local authors include Alice Pung, Shaun Tan and Jay Kristoff. That night, the freshest performing young writers will battle it out over three minutes to be named The Rumble Champion 2018.
On Saturday night, Jacqui Lambie, one of the most heartfelt and unscripted figures in Australian Parliament, will talk to ABC Radio Sydney’s Richard Glover about her remarkable life. Foreign correspondent and The First Casualty author Peter Greste will be in conversation with journalist Hamish Macdonald. He will examine the threat to investigative journalism in the age of terror and fake news, as part of the Festival’s 2018 Year of Power.
