Witi Ihimaera speaks with novelist Kate Duignan about Native Son, the sequel to his Ockham Award-winning memoir, Māori Boy. Beginning with the relief of passing his School C exams Witi takes us to the family farm where he worked, to the myths that inhabited his internal world, and to his discovery that none of the books in Wellington’s bookshops were by Māori writers.

Join one of our greatest storytellers for the tale of how he picked up his pen and challenged the dominant literature of Aotearoa and the world.
