Stay up late for wine-fuelled interviews with international authors on a couch

Some of our favourite Sydney Writers’ Festival memories have been from the free late night interviews by the Chaser crew. Get in early to bag a table, and enjoy an irreverent panel interview conducted by Chris Taylor as you dive into snacks and booze from the pop-up Hemingway’s Bar. 

Thursday’s guests are radio producer Starlee Kine (The Mystery Podcast), former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, and robot expert Richard Watson. 

Friday’s line-up includes Sydney artist Ken Done, gold medallist Leisel Jones, and co-founder of The Philosophers' Magazine Julian Baggini. 

Saturday’s guests are Magda Szubanski (Kath and Kim/Babe), politician and founding member of Midnight Oil Peter Garrett, and Indian novelist and yoga instructor Ira Trivedi.
