Welcome to the Mudgee Readers' Festival
Our 2017 festival was jam-packed with books, wine, food, great conversation and fun events. Thank you to the authors, readers, volunteers, local community and visitors who made the Mudgee Readers' Festival such a wonderful weekend!
Long Lazy Lunch
In researching two acclaimed books of international reportage – My Columbian Death and Running with the Blood God – Matthew Thompson has found himself hiking into bamboo forests to meet Filipino guerrillas, sprinting from Iranian riot police, touring Kosovo with Serb nationalists and much more. His latest book MAYHEM is the blistering account of the life and times of Australia’s most notorious bandit and prisoner, Christopher ‘Badness’ Binse. He talks adventure and mayhem with ABC Western Plains’ Nick Lowther over a long, lazy lunch.
