Attend Magda Szubanski's funeral, hosted by Magda Szubanski

What will your funeral be like? Who will go? What will they say? Will there be tears? What will the music be like? 

Magda Szubanski wants to discover the answers to these very Tom Sawyer questions, and she will be appearing at her very own funeral during Melbourne Writers Festival. 

There will be big-name guests, but just as with a funeral for the dead, you won't know who they are until you arrive. You can expect toasts and eulogies, plus of course the very funny Szubanski. The event will be hosted by Emilie Zoey Baker.
