Join 29 of Aotearoa’s leading authors and change-makers who come together over four days for kōrero about their latest books, the lives that have informed them and how the written word enables them to explore the universal issues that matter to us all.
From literary legends - like Charlotte Grimshaw and Selina Tusitala Marsh - to thought leaders - like Hinemoa Elder and Kerensa Johnston - to emerging superstars - like Airini Beautrais, Nic Low, Ruby Solly and Tayi Tibble - and exciting newcomers - like Jacqueline Bublitz and Angelique Kasmara - you will hear ‘behind the scenes’ stories about their provocative memoirs, stunning debut novels, riveting true crime, speculative future worlds and stories told from a broad range of perspectives.
Books will be on sale at the festival bookstore thanks to our sponsor Page & Blackmore. Most authors will be available for book signings after their sessions.
