We are proud to welcome a number of international and national authors flying into Canberra Airport for the Canberra Writers Festival.

The three-day celebration of literature, reading, writing and writers will focus on the theme Power, Politics and Passion. It includes interviews and conversations with writers from the ACT, across Australia and around the world.

From 23 to 26 August, thriller, crime, military, defence, political, children’s and young adult writers will participate in talks, lunches, dinners, book signings, panels and family events at some of Canberra’s most well-known locations including the National Library of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery and the National Press Club of Australia.
