The 2019 Volume Mapua Literary Festival is a boutique literary festival featuring some of New Zealand’s best and most interesting writers. Organised by Volume, the 2018 New Zealand Bookshop of the Year, the festival continues the series of literary events held in Mapua to benefit the Mapua Community Library. All ticket sales benefit the library.

Whose art gets seen, and whose is remembered? When a young woman in post-war London is tasked with recommending acquisitions for New Zealand's National Art Gallery she struggles to reconcile her idea of that far-away country and her own modernist sensibilities. Sleigh’s novel explores two women’s creativity and freedom against the backdrop of art history's patriarchal biases.

Thomasin Sleigh’s writing about art and culture has been published widely.
Come and hear Thomasin in conversation with Stella Chrysostomou of Volume.
