TV's Anna Daniels to join William McInnes at Queensland Day event

Writer and TV personality Anna Daniels will join author and actor William McInnes at Behind Queensland’s Words, Noosa’s 2017 Writer’s Festival and Queensland Day celebration.

Daniels is a late addition to the line-up, replacing conservationist Bob Irwin who has had to withdraw from the June 10 festivities.

“While we’re sad to lose Bob Irwin, Anna Daniels is a scream and sure to delight audiences of all ages with her hilarious stories,” says Noosa Library Service Programs Officer Liz Bleechmore.

The popular storyteller co-created ABC's first online sketch series Tough at the Top with Melbourne comedian, Anne Edmonds. For several years she wrote and presented upbeat stories for TV’s The Project.

“Having grown up in Rockhampton, Daniels championed the stories and characters of rural and regional Australia with affection and humour,” says Ms Bleechmore. 

“She’ll regale the audience with tales from her work and how she came to write her Vogel’s Literary Award shortlisted debut novel Girl in Between – the upbeat and hilarious story of Lucy Crighton’s life at the crossroads.”

Daniels comments: “I’ve always loved comedy which not only makes you laugh but also pulls at your heartstrings. I think a lot of people may be able to relate to Lucy’s story!”

Daniels will join William McInnes and Black Mountain singer Jeunae Rogers as special guests at Behind Queensland’s Words, which rounds out Noosa’s free, five-day celebration of Queensland.

Redcliffe-raised William McInnes is always popular with audiences for his trademark humour and witty anecdotes, which have made his books such a success.

Behind Queensland’s Words: A Celebration of Queensland Day is part of the Queensland Government’s Queensland Day celebrations 2‒10 June 2017.
