'An Evening with David Malouf'

Wednesday 23 April, Deakin Edge in Federation Square (6 pm)

Few writers command as much interest and admiration as David Malouf – poet,  short-story writer, novelist, memoirist, librettist, essayist. Fewer still mark their eightieth birthday with the publication of two new books. Lisa Gorton reviews Malouf’s new poetry collection, Earth Hour, in the March issue Happily for the many devotees of his essays and critical writings, Knopf has collected a number of Malouf ’s major work in A First Place (which we will review in a coming issue).

To mark David Malouf ’s  eightieth birthday, and to celebrate his poetry, ABR and the City of Melbourne – through its Melbourne Conversations series – will present ‘An Evening with David Malouf ’ at Deakin Edge on Shakespeare’s birthday – Wednesday, 23 April.

Lisa Gorton will lead this conversation, which will be followed by a major announcement sure to be of much interest to David Malouf ’s many admirers and to those with an interest in ABR’s burgeoning creative programs.
