Ian Wedde

Join the Friends of the Michael King Writers’ Centre for an afternoon with Ian Wedde, the current writer-in-residence at the centre in Devonport.
This event will be held at the Devonport Library seminar room this Sunday, 27 September, starting at 2 pm. Free entry.
Ian, born in Blenheim, is a citizen of the world and a man of huge influence in the world of New Zealand writing and art. His novels, poems and art books on eminent painters have earned him an eminent place in our time. We will be fortunate to learn something of his earlier interests, and a hint of what he is devoting his time to while he is The University of Auckland/Creative New Zealand Writer-in-Residence at the Michael King Writers’ Centre in Devonport.
