Marlborough Book Festival: Dame Fiona Kidman in conversation with Jane Forrest Waghorn - Whitehaven Wine Room
Fiona has never shied away from the big topics both on and off the page. She has a deep interest in social justice and telling the story of “outsiders”.
Fiona reflects on the causes she has taken up over her career, from her feminist writings in the 70s and 80s, to telling the tragic tale of Albert Black, one of the last people to be executed in this country, in 'This Mortal Boy' (2018).
The 2021 Marlborough Book Festival runs from 7pm Friday 9 July through to 4.30pm Sunday 11 July with a range of author sessions on across at the weekend at the ASB Theatre, Blenheim. More info at the Marlborough Book Festival website.
