Geoff Goodfellow returns to Writers’ Week with a reading of his new verse novella, Blight Street, featuring Geoff and performers Roslyn Oades and Nic Darrigo.

Set in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, Blight Street is written in the language and idiom of the culture it portrays. Harrowing but tender, Blight Street draws on the vital themes that characterise Geoff’s writing: the working class struggle, the tragedy of addiction and the celebration of love.

The reading is followed by a short interview with Geoff, chaired by Rick Sarre.
