Tomorrow night, Wednesday 30 July, is the first in Sydney PEN’s 2008 series Three Writers, featuring Christopher Kremmer talking about greed. I will be hosting the evening in my capacity as President of Sydney PEN. Light refreshments and even parking is provided, at the Mackerras Theatre at Sydney Grammar School. With the strong support of Copyright Agency Limited, ticket proceeds will help build an online community for Sydney PEN. All the details can be found here, with one significant change: immediately following Christopher’s lecture will be an in-conversation with author and commentator Anne Summers, instead of Monica Attard as previously advertised.
On Thursday night the caravan travels to Canberra, where the lecture will be delivered at the National Library, and followed by an in-conversation with ABC radio presenter Alex Sloan.
As someone who works in both the literary and philanthrophic spheres, I am extremely curious as to what such an impressive thinker as Kremmer has to say about the culture of greed in Australia.
