The Perth Festival has released the full 2020 Literature & Ideas program.

Literature & Ideas 2020 curator Sisonke Msimang invites us to come together “to talk about the most pressing issues of our time: It’s a program packed with all the things that matter: Land. Money. Power. Sex.”

While the Literature & Ideas festival officially runs from the 21 to 23 February 2020, you will also find a range of events in the weeks before and after the packed weekend program.

This includes the first ever Lit Crawl Perth (Thursday 20 Feb); a series of mobile book clubs—with food!—in the form of ‘A Bus, a Book & a Bite’ (Tuesday 11 February, Monday 17 February and Monday 24 February); a series of events at The Literature Centre in Fremantle (Monday 17 February – Thursday 20 February); the Business of Being a Writer (Saturday 22 February); and more.

To explore the full program, head to the Perth Festival website.
