Marlborough Book Festival: Brannavan Gnanalingam in conversation with Tessa Nicholson - Whitehaven Wine Room
The Ockham judges praised 'Sprigs' as “an unflinching novel which forces us to reckon with uncomfortable truths about power and privilege in Aotearoa”. The book comes with trigger warnings, but also nuanced storytelling and some comic relief.
Brannavan discusses the book and the issues around masculinity it puts in the spotlight.
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.
