Marlborough Book Festival: In conversation with Rachael King - Spy Valley Wines
Climate change is no laughing matter, but Kirsten McDougall's fast-paced novel 'She's a Killer' set in a foreseeable future Aotearoa is full of unexpected humour. Her apathetic protagonist Alice is content to observe society's disarray until a teenage genius with a fantastic backstory upends her life and emboldens her to act.
Kirsten discusses her masterful plot, fresh characters and the power of fiction to help us face up to climate forecasts.
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.
