The Tom Keneally Centre was a hotbed of activity yesterday when Walter Mason took over Tom Keneally’s office for the day. (Fortunately, Tom was willing to share!)
Over an 8 hour span, Walter interviewed Tom, PM Newton, Claire Scobie, Garry Wotherspoon and Helen O’Neill in the Tom Keneally Centre as Southerly journal’s guest blogger.
Walter also had an opportunity to chat with several members and also to hear Tom Keneally talk about his newest novel, Shame and the Captives.
Thanks to Walter, Southerly and all the authors who took part. What a great day!
Shame and the Captives and his pick for the one novel everyone should read.
