From ARRC committee: The program is still a work in progress — as we send out speaker invitations and receive responses we might change or shuffle some sessions. But this will give you an idea of the amazing line up we have so far. There will also be two book-signing sessions of 1.5 hours each — one on Saturday afternoon and one on Sunday afternoon.
Time to start building your bank accounts in time for February, Melburnians!
