15 text sculptures are located along Wellington's breath-taking waterfront, showcasing gems of writing by authors who have lived in Wellington at some point in their lives. Each piece has been carefully placed to accentuate the beauty of the work.
The walk is a wonderful introduction to the hearts and minds of Wellingtonians. It also serves as a reminder to those who live here, of the vibrancy of life in the Capital.
Featured authors: Katherine Mansfield, James K. Baxter, Robin Hyde, Bill Manhire, Bruce Mason, Patricia Grace, Maurice Gee, Pat Lawlor, Vincent O’Sullivan, Lauris Edmond, Denis Glover, Eileen Duggan, Alistair Te Ariki Campbell, Fiona Kidman, Barbara Anderson.
A brochure including a map of the sculpture sites is available free from libraries, book shops, and information centres.
