'Each writer is experienced in presenting at Australia’s premier writers festivals but we didn’t anticipate the scale and grandeur of the U.S. National Book Festival. Our introduction to the Festival commenced with a reception hosted by Caroline Millar, Deputy Chief of Mission, Australian Embassy, Washington, where we were introduced to National Library of Congress, U.S. National Book Festival staff and first nations literary figures. The hospitality was incredibly warm and it was evident that there is great interest and support for FNAWN activities.' (Abstract)
