Each week, our hosts – authors Lili Wilkinson and Tony Birch – will interview experts intimately familiar with the texts, unearthing those hidden gems that could help your essay shine.
This week, we delve into One Night the Moon, Rachel Perkins' 2001 film set in the Australian outback, with Tony Birch and Kaarin Fairfax.
Tony Birch is the author of the acclaimed novel, Blood (UQP 2011), shortlisted for this year’s Miles Franklin Award. He has also published widely as a short fiction writer.
Kaarin grew up in the theatre at the feet of her father, George Fairfax, as he acted and directed shows at St. Martin’s – then called the Little Theatre. It was during this time that her passion and wonder for the magic of theatre, acting and the arts was ignited. (rodneyvc)
