Event description

Description

In its annual Honouring Australian Writers series, Writing NSW pays tribute to writers who have made an important contribution to our literary culture.

This year we honour Sumner Locke Elliott (1917-1991), internationally best-selling author, playwright, and scriptwriter. Elliott is best known for Careful, He Might Hear You, which won the 1963 Miles Franklin Award and was adapted into the 1983 film. The event will include conversations, readings, and archival materia with Sharon Clarke, Kim Knuckey, Margaret Fink and Walter Mason.

The Honouring Australian Writers series is made possible with support from the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund and the State Library of NSW.
