Dead Girls Don’t Lie - Becky Manawatu, Jacqueline Bublitz and Tina Clough on changing the narrative
The dead girls are frustrated. No one knows who they are. No one is telling their story. These three authors are changing the narrative, telling the stories of the lost, the stolen, the trapped. Whether it be cyclical abuse and gang violence, victim-blaming and human trafficking wrapped up in a damn good, tightly plotted mystery, these novelists are using their stories to put the spotlight on the souls at the heart of the issue.
Venue: Toitoi, Festival Hub, Hastings
