Closing address: Jennifer Egan

Acclaimed author Jennifer Egan closes the festival with an address on technology, reality and fiction

Manhattan Beach novelist Jennifer Egan has been described by The New York Times as a “refreshingly unclassifiable novelist”.

The author once tweeted an entire short story, and wrote the penultimate chapter of her Pulitzer Prize-winning A Visit from the Good Squad as a PowerPoint presentation. Jennifer will deliver the festival’s closing address on the relationship between technology, fiction and reality.

How does the pressure to market ourselves impact our inner lives?

How has the prevalence of virtual experience altered our very definition of ‘reality’?

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see one of America’s most fascinating modern authors.



Sunday 6 May 2018 from 6pm to 7pm


Full: $35.00
