Adelaide : Kerryn Goldsworthy, Barbara Santich and David Walker

Adelaide Writers' Week - Monday, March 5 2012


West Stage, 3.45pm

One of Adelaide’s most enduring conversations is the conversation about Adelaide. Kerryn Goldsworthy’s account in Adelaide, a city in nine objects, is a personal guide. David Walker, who grew up here, casts his thoughts back to memories of his youth. Barbara Santich has long chronicled our enduring relationships with food. Together these three writers will take a familiar conversation into entirely new places.
