2015 Harold White Lecture
Harold White Lecture
The Author is Not Dead. She is Coming to a Microphone, near You.
Hannie Rayson delivers the inaugural Harold White lecture, reflecting on the public role of the writer and the reality of having to blog, post, be liked and followed, while really being ‘the head-marketer for the brand called You.’
Hannie Rayson is a playwright and screenwriter, and has recently released her memoir Hello, Beautiful! Scenes from a life. She made history when Life After George became the first play to be shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Award. Her best known play, Hotel Sorrento, was made into a feature film and has become an Australian classic.
