Author Meets Author: Eleanor Catton and Emily Perkins

22 November 2012 - 7.30 pm for 8 pm

The Devonport Library Associates are providing an occasion to hear Eleanor Catton and Emily Perkins discuss their craft. Both are superb story-tellers whose novels and stories have made an impact and who are both highly regarded as important NZ writers.

Eleanor holds the University of Auckland Residency at the Michael King Writers’ Centre for 2012. Her novel, The Rehearsal, is a great read about one of those ‘situations’ that occur at secondary school. Emily has won prizes for her works, some of which are Not Her Real Name, Leave Before You Go, The New Girl and Novel About My Wife. Her latest novel which has sparked a lot of interest is titled The Forrests. 

Drinks and Nibbles provided. 7.30pm Devonport Library Victoria Road. Entry with koha.

This event is part of the Devonport Arts Festival which runs from November 17 to 25.
