Marlborough Book Festival: In conversation with Rachael King - McLauchlan Family Auditorium
Paula Morris has become a vital voice in New Zealand literature, with highly acclaimed short stories, essays and novels, including 'Rangatira', fiction winner at the 2012 NZ Post Book Awards and Ngā Kupu Ora Māori Book Awards. But her work goes well beyond her own pen, as an advocate for New Zealand literature and Māori writers. Paula is the founder of the Academy of New Zealand Literature and Wharerangi, the Māori literature hub, and co-editor of 'Ko Aotearoa Tātou', an anthology of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and visual art created in response to the 2019 Christchurch mosque attacks.
Paula speaks to fellow novelist Rachael King about a literary life, as writer, teacher, mentor and advocate.
We have limited the ticketing in the auditorium so you can choose to social distance if you would like to.
The 2022 Marlborough Book Festival runs from 6.30pm Thursday 7 July through to 5pm Sunday 10 July with a range of author sessions on across at the weekend at the ASB Theatre, Blenheim and Spy Valley Wines. More info at the Marlborough Book Festival website.
