THE Sydney Writers' Festival is coming to the Border next month.
The Sydney Writers' Festival Live and Local program returns to Albury for the fifth year on May 3 to 5, streaming headline events to the Albury Library Museum.
During the broadcast audience members can submit questions via Twitter and SMS to the writers on stage.
About 35 partners, including Albury, will deliver festival events to communities in every state and territory.
Sydney Writers' Festival artistic director Michaela McGuire said Border residents could join the conversation with leading writers and intellectuals, to celebrate books and challenge the ideas surrounding this year's theme, Lie to Me.
"Hundreds of the world's most exciting writers will gather in Sydney to examine the white lies and deceptions that are necessary for survival, and malicious lies that are spun with darker intent," she said.
"They'll explore the ways that writing can be used to deceive others in an increasingly post-truth world and look at the lies that we tell ourselves and each other, and those we collectively tell as a country."
Featured authors include Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah, Meg Wolitzer, Rachel Kushner, David Marr, Max Porter, Andrew Sean Greer and Leigh Sales.
OTHER ENTERTAINMENT NEWS:
Adjei-Brenyah is the bestselling author of Friday Black, stories "meant to be read right now", according to TheNew York Times.
