📅 SATURDAY 11 AUGUST
🕑 4.15pm-5.15pm
📍 ULUMBARRA THEATRE
👤 Tom Griffiths and Alex Miller

According to novelist Alex Miller, “My allegiance is to the truth of dreams not to the interpretation of factual reality”. According to historian Tom Griffiths, “History doesn’t own truth, and fiction doesn’t own imagination, but … occasionally, however, it is hard to draw the line.” Join these two writers as they continue a conversation they have valued over many years, about how they grapple with the challenges of their chosen writing genre, how they learn from each other just where that line must be drawn, and whether truth changes over time.
