Come to the National Library between 10am to 3pm to celebrate ‘Verb Festival 2020’. Immerse yourself in stimulating and entertaining conversation about books and ideas with writers from all over Aotearoa.
From stories of living in the wilderness with wild woman Miriam Lancewood, to talking about conservation, activism and autism with 16-year old Irish nature writer Dara McAnulty, to delving into Kai Māori with chef Monique Fiso, the Verb Festival 2020 programme is packed with fascinating people to listen and talk to.
