The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival recently congratulated Anna Funder for winning this year’s Miles Franklin Award, adding to the growing anticipation on her participation as a headliner in the forthcoming 2012 festival program.

It's been a triumphant year for the Australian-born author of All That I Am and Stasiland. Anna Funder was also awarded the Independent Bookseller’s Award for Best Debut Fiction, Indie Book of the Year 2012, Australian Book Industry Awards' Book of the Year, Literary Fiction Book of the Year and the Barbara Jefferis Award 2012.

"'All That I Am' remains one of the most intensely memorable, disturbing and rewarding books," said Janet de Neefe, festival founder and director.  “I read the book in 2011. I was moved by both the story and the skill with which it was written. I am not surprised the Miles Franklin judges chose this book and we are honored and delighted that Anna Funder has consented to participate in our program. This is a book that not only reflects history but also speaks of its relevance to our world today. Our audiences will flock to Anna's conversations and panel sessions.”

Those attending the Ubud’s Writers and Readers Festival will have the opportunity in October to meet this award-winning author together with more than one hundred other writers and thinkers from across the globe.

Early bird discounts are available now via the [Ubud Writers and Readers Website

A full program of events, including supplementary workshops, literary lunches, dinners and gala events will be published at the end of August.
