Out of season stimulation

Love being able to have stories from the Festival available year round. Looking forward to the 2019 release.

VeteranSWFer and her daughter

Many sessions this year and again feeling the weight of the books I’m toting as I had back down the coast. The dignity of Gillian Triggs, the seering intellect of Sarah Perry, the wit od Rachel Kushner, the intense brilliance of Markus Zusak... these are highlights. Loved hearing the rain on the roof at Carriageworks and the sea of yellow volunteers! Thank yoi

Disappointed

I used to enjoy the ideas and the quality of speakers from the SWF; however, of late, I have experienced great disappointment. The level is similar to high school students and the intellectual stimulation and sharing of deep and profound ideas and insights seems to be a thing of the past.
