Sydney Writers’ Festival Makes Triumphant Return in 2021

The program boasts a diverse range of events, featuring more than 400 local and international writers from April 26 to May 2. There is a promising virtual line-up including Kazuo Ishiguro, Isabel Wilkerson, and Geraldine Brooks, and in-person events featuring David Malouf, Tanya Plibersek, and more.
