The timetables are out for the Writers Week at the New Zealand Festival (i.e. the Wellington Festival) always an exciting time for booklovers.
The 2016 Festival will again be hosting the Janet Frame Memorial Lecture to be given this year by author Philip Temple. His theme will be:
WHERE WE WERE, WHERE WE ARE NOW
"How much has changed for New Zealand writers in the last 50 years, and what has remained constant? For the ninth New Zealand Society of Authors Janet Frame Memorial Lecture, which coincides with the 50th anniversary edition of his book The Sea and the Snow, NZSA President of Honour Philip Temple shares both his own experience and his work on a biography of Maurice Shadbolt to illuminate the subject."
