Who can resist the gravelly charms of legendary storyteller Thomas Keneally?

Perhaps best known for his Booker Prize-winning novel Schindler’s Ark (he then wrote the screenplay for Stephen Spielberg’s Oscar-winning film ‘Schindler’s List’), his novels also include Bring Larks and Heroes, The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith, Gossip from the Forest, The Widow and Her Hero, and – the latest – The People’s Train.

Thomas has also written great histories, including The Great Shame and The Commonwealth of Thieves. Never one to pass up a challenge, he’s just released the first in a three-volume history of Australia.

He pauses in his prolific output for a moment to join us for a treasured hour. Chair: Brian Edwards.

Presented as a part of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.

Supported by the Australia Council for the Arts.
