Keen to mingle with local writers and readers while you're in Melbourne? Tickets are now on sale for two evening literary events during conference week. Both sessions are part of the Wheeler Centre's Mayhem series.

Andrew Sean Greer: The Less We Know
Andrew Sean Greer, author of Less (Pulitzer Prize 2018), The confessions of Max Tivoli and The story of a marriage will be in conversation with Benjamin Law, discussing the 'ways in which writing can express our hunger for language, for the world, and for each other'.

Thursday 9 May 2019, 7.00pm - 8.00pm at Athenaeum Theatre

Akala: Comedy Tragedy History
Akala (Kingslee James McLean Daley) is a hip-hop artist, poet, historian, activist, author and polemicist. His book Natives: race and class in the ruins of empire (2018) explores 'the complexity - and denial - of race and class in modern Britain'. Akala will be in conversation with Andy Butler.
