Mad for Madmen [January 23]

I have been invited to host a panel discussion on the award-winning US TV series ‘Madmen’ for the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI, at Federation Square) on Thursday May 27th. Panellists include Mark Nicholls (Melbourne University), Debi Enker (The Age Green Guide) and Russell Howcroft, and the event runs from 7 till 9 pm.

Before that, though, i’ll be co-hosting The Conversation Hour on 774 ABC Melbourne with Jon Faine on Friday 19th February (11 am) – our guests are Niki Savva, author of the new memoir ‘So Greek – Confessions of a Conservative Leftie’ and Rebecca Starford, founder of the literary journal ‘Kill Your Darlings’.

On Saturday March 13th I’ll be performing a recital of French art songs and clarinet pieces at the Benalla Art Gallery – all welcome.

On Sunday April 11th I’ll be performing in an Opera Sessions concert called ‘Crazy!– Songs of Mad Love, Jealousy and Revenge‘ at The Toff In Town, Swanston St. Melbourne – starts 5 pm.

And keep an eye out for my review of David Carlin’s memoir ‘Our Father Who Wasn’t There’ in the A2 section of The Age on Saturday 30th January.
