Tim Winton In Conversation

For over thirty years, Tim Winton has written novels in which the natural world is as much a living presence as any character. This October Tim will be appearing in-conversation for two special events (Perth and Melbourne only) to share his personal relationship with the Australian landscape, how it came to be, how it has determined his ideas, his writing and his life. Both events will be followed by a book signing.
