Acclaimed Australian author Tim Winton is coming to Launceston to deliver a powerful meditation on lost boys and the riptide of toxic masculinity. The hour-long exclusive event will feature a specially commissioned soundscape, and stunning photographic interludes, as Winton explores the declarations and fraught silences that mark the journey to adulthood for so many young men.

This exciting event, proudly presented by the Tamar Valley Writers Festival, will be Winton’s only appearance in Tasmania. Join the Tamar Valley Writers Festival on Saturday, 24 March, at the Tramsheds, Inveresk, at 4.30pm for a very special experience as Winton, the pre-eminent novelist of his generation, brings words, images and sounds to the discussion of our most bewildering and desolate landscape – contemporary manhood.

With thanks to Penguin Random House and Petrarchs Bookshop. Tickets are available through trybooking here.
