Perth Writers’ Festival 2017

Thursday 23rd of February to Sunday 26th of February
Book-lovers, storytellers and writers – it’s time to put the dates for the 2017 Perth Writer’s Festival in your diary: February 23 to 26th. Although the full program won’t be released until January, each year the Festival is a hotbed of ideas, with a gathering of international and Australian writers, artists and thinkers from across the globe.

The opening address will be by Ben Rawlence (author of City of Thorns) on the subject of the refugee crisis that goes deeper than mere newspaper headlines, while the closing speech is to be delivered by Syrian writer Marwa al-Sabouni (author of The Battle) on the topics of the civil war in Syria, architecture and how the built environment directly affects the community that inhabits it.

Family Day will be Sunday 26th and with the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter being celebrated in 2017, there will be a series of Hogwarts themed events and people are encouraged to come dressed at their favourite Harry Potter character.

Experience the best of Leederville in Perth.
