Summary
  • "2008 marked the centenary of the birth of Richard Wright. His biographer, Hazel Rowley, talks about the achievements of this African-American author who wrote powerful and at times controversial novels, short stories, poetry and non-fiction and who achieved a number of firsts: the first bestselling black American writer; the first black man to buy a house in Greenwich Village; the first African-American writer to leave for Paris after World War 2; the first black American writer to star in a movie based on his own novel."-- website
  • "At the 2008 Melbourne Writers' Festival Robert Drewe talked about his reading life and the books that have inspired him. Robert Drewe's books have earned numerous awards - The Drowner was the first novel to win a Premier's literary award in every state, his novel Fortune won a National Book Council award and he received a Commonwealth Writers Prize for the short story collection The Bay of Contented Men. His books have also been adapted for the screen. Our Sunshine was made into the film Ned Kelly and both The Bodysurfers and The Shark Net, his memoir of growing up in Western Australia in the 1950s and 60s, became TV mini-series. Rovert Drewe begins his address at the festival with Tarzan of the Apes, which, as a boy growing up in Western Australia, he found much more interesting than the children's books then on offer." -- website
