LOVE NEW ZEALAND WRITERS!
Two events featuring local writers have proven so popular there will be additional sessions! Big thanks to David Galler and Peter Simpson for stepping up to meet demand.
We are thrilled to present New Zealand’s premier book honours – The Ockham New Zealand Book Awards - winners’ ceremony as the first public event at the Festival.
