HOSTED in the historic setting of the Scone Arts & Crafts Hall, the 2020 Scone Literary Festival program was launched on Saturday night at a sell-out event.
The launch doubled as an oration in honour of Australia’s only Nobel Laureate for Literature, Patrick White, of the White family from Belltrees.
Award-winning Melbourne-based author Christos Tsiolkas, in conversation with Australian commentator and festival patron Phillip Adams, touched on the Nobel prize winner’s literary legacy.
Speaking to The Advocate ahead of the oration, Tsiolkas said it was “a real honour” to speak at an event honouring Patrick White.
