๐Ÿ“… SATURDAY 11 AUGUST
๐Ÿ•‘ 4.15pm-5.15pm
๐Ÿ“ ULUMBARRA THEATRE
๐Ÿ‘ค Tom Griffiths and Alex Miller

According to novelist Alex Miller, โ€œMy allegiance is to the truth of dreams not to the interpretation of factual realityโ€. According to historian Tom Griffiths, โ€œHistory doesnโ€™t own truth, and fiction doesnโ€™t own imagination, but โ€ฆ occasionally, however, it is hard to draw the line.โ€ 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.
