PROGRAM


While I’m thrilled to be part of the Terror Australis Festival and can’t wait to share my passion for reading and writing with locals and visitors alike, make no mistake: behind the friendly exterior, in my imagination, I’ll be finding the menace in your beautiful environment, turning your excellent local wines and produce into poison, scattering your exquisite Huon Valley with dead bodies… - Angela Savage
