Former federal minister and raconteur Christopher Pyne will kickstart the Canberra Writers Festival next week.
Pyne will be in conversation with Annabel Crabb on Tuesday, July 7, in the Members' Bar at Old Parliament House to launch his new book The Insider: The scoops, the scandals and the serious business within the Canberra bubble.
Pyne's book launch meanwhile, called Wine with Pyne will be streamed for free from 6pm to 7pm. You can subscribe to the event here.
The festival suggests having "a Mixer with The Fixer" to celebrate the event.
The festival proper is from August 12-16.
