Ted Chiang, author of the collection Stories of Your Life and Others, is visiting Melbourne to take part in the Melbourne Writers Festival. He has won the Hugo, Nebula, Sturgeon, and Locus awards and been translated into a dozen languages. His novella Story of Your Life was the basis of the Oscar-nominated motion picture Arrival.
The MWF theme for 2018 is “A Matter of Life and Death”. Ted’s session, The Alchemist’s Gate will explore the philosophy of time travel and speak to the question of free will.
Writer Benjamin Law will join Ted on stage at Deakin Edge on Tuesday 28 August at 8.30pm.
