Penguin Long Weekend Literary Festival

In times of adversity, arts and literature have always pulled us through.

Penguin Books Australia invites you to attend the Penguin Long Weekend Literary Festival from the comfort of your own home. We have pulled together an exciting line up of some of our most beloved authors to discuss their new books, and these talks range from 10-15 minutes. No maps or wristbands required.

Please note the streams will vary in quality and sound as the authors have recorded these from home in isolation.

We’d love to hear your thoughts via #PRHLongWeekend


Tom Keneally on The Dickens Boy


Nicole Alexander on The Cedar Tree


Katherine Scholes on The Beautiful Mother


Liam Pieper on Sweetness and Light


Minnie Darke on The Lost Love Song


Bernard Gallate on The Origin of Me
