Trent Dalton: From Eli to Lola (Sydney Writers Festival)

May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Sydney Writers’ Festival will live-stream its headline events from Sydney to the Mackay region.

Trent Dalton, award-winning author of Boy Swallows Universe (now a hit Netflix series) returns with Lola in the Mirror, a big, beautiful novel about grappling with our past, present, and possible futures.

Trent Dalton is a two-time Walkley Award–winning journalist and the international bestselling author of Lola in the Mirror, Love Stories and All Our Shimmering Skies. His books have sold over 1.3million copies in Australia alone. The adaptation of his debut novel, Boy Swallows Universe, became Australia’s most watched Netflix TV show within three days of release and broke Top 10 lists in 60 countries across the world. He lives in Brisbane with his wife and two daughters.

After the wild success of Live & Local in 2023, Sydney Writers’ Festival returns to your local library in 2024 to bring the best of the Festival direct to you. Find other Sydney Writers Festival sessions here.
