The Reader’s Feast Crime and Justice Festival returns to Melbourne this weekend.
The event will be headlined by Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin and there’ll be a number of other interesting crime writers speaking.
On Sunday at 4pm, I’ll be chairing a panel, ‘Hard labour: the art of crime writing’, with veteran writer Garry Disher, author of the Wyatt series amongst other books, Angela Savage and Leigh Redhead.
All four of us have stories in Crime Factory’s all Australian anthology, Hard Labour, which will be available for sale on the day.
It’s my time chairing a festival panel and I promise I’m going to try and make it interesting. I might even throw a few curve balls at the panel. Whatever the case, I guarantee I will not be asking what the lure of dark crime writing is. I think we know what that is already.
The session will take place at Reader’s Feast Bookstore at 162 Collins Street.
