Professor David Schlosberg, Co-Director of the Sydney Environment Institute will chair a panel at the Sydney Writers’ Festival

Professor David Schlosberg, Co-Director of the Sydney Environment Institute, will chair a session at the Sydney Writers’ Festival on the subject of ‘Climate Change and the New Nature’.

Climate change and other environmental pressures are transforming the world before our eyes. How do we understand our connection to nature when there is less of it every time we look? What place is there for wonder in a world in which extinction is the new normal? And how are writers to respond?

Anson Cameron and James Bradley will speak about their reactions to climate change as fiction writers, on Saturday 23 May at 3pm in the Philharmonia Studio, Pier 4/5, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay.

James Bradley is the author of four novels: Clade, Wrack, The Deep Field, and The Resurrectionist, and a book of poetry, Paper Nautilus. His books have won or been shortlisted for a number of major Australian and international literary awards and have been widely translated.

Anson Cameron has written five critically acclaimed novels: Silences Long Gone,Tin Toys, Confessin’ the Blues, Lies I Told About a Girl, and Stealing Picasso, as well as two collections of short stories, Nice Shootin’ Cowboy and Pepsi Bears and Other Stories. He was born in Shepparton in 1961 and lives in Melbourne where he writes a column for The Age newspaper.
