Marlborough Book Festival: Lecture by Paula Morris - Whitehaven Room
Award-winning writer Paula Morris delivers a lecture on the fascinating, chaotic and ground-breaking life of the New Zealand journalist, poet, fiction writer and war correspondent Iris Wilkinson, aka Robin Hyde.
Paula and distinguished photographer Haru Sameshima went off the beaten track to produce 'Shining Land: Looking for Robin Hyde', a "picture book" made for grown-ups which explores Robin Hyde by visiting three locations of her life. Shining Land is the second in the kōrero series of picture books edited by Lloyd Jones, in which leading New Zealand writers and artists collaborate to 'stretch' the bounds of what a book can do.
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.
