Description

Saturday 5 May

1:30-2:30pm Resisting Unjust Authority
Presenters - Masha Gessen, Alexis Okeowo, Mohammed Al Samawi Facilitator - Sarah Krasnostein
Three of the Festival’s brightest minds come together to examine our evolving relationship with power. The Future is History author Masha Gessen, The Fox Hunt author Mohammed Al Samawi and A Moonless, Starless Sky author Alexis Okeowo consider how unjust authority is wielded and resisted in the modern world, how we can free ourselves from its messages and impact, and how these strategies are changing over time.

3.00-4.00pm Women in Tech: Okay Ladies, Now Let's Get Information

Presenters - Angela Saini, Aminatou Sow, Elanor Huntington Facilitator - Deb Verhoeven
Why do the tech and science industries remain a boys’ club after so many years? How are inroads finally being made? And who are the success stories bucking the trend? Join three inspiring speakers in conversation with Deb Verhoeven as they celebrate the incredible women of tech and science.

4:30-5:30pm Annabel Crabb's BooKwiz
Presenters - Leigh Sales, Richard Fidler, Julia Zemiro Facilitator - Annabel Crabb
Which book are you ashamed of loving? Which do you reread when you’re in a reading slump? What have you always meant to read but now suspect you never will? Beloved journalist and presenter Annabel Crabb returns to the Festival for BooKwiz, a thorough interrogation of some well-known readers, including ABC 7.30 anchor Leigh Sales, Conversations presenter Richard Fidler and – lending cult appeal – the RocKwiz host herself, Julia Zemiro.
