Katherine Mansfield (1888 – 1923) is New Zealand’s most internationally famous author. She was a writer of short stories, poetry, letters, journals and reviews, and changed the way the short story was written in the English language. She was a rebel and a modernist who lived her short life of 34 years to the full.
Between 22 July – 22 October 2018, Wellington celebrates 130 years since Katherine Mansfield's birth with a city-wide programme of events, exhibitions and performances.
A full schedule of events is available at the website.
KM130 is proudly brought to you by the New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Katherine Mansfield House & Garden, Circa Theatre, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, and the Alexander Turnbull Library.
