The highly successful ‘True Stories Told Live’ format, developed by the NZ Book Council, returns to launch this year’s Festival in an hour and half of live and true storytelling, unscripted and unmediated, delivered by a selection of this year’s stellar guests.
Join Lemon Andersen (US/Puerto Rico), Eoin Colfer (Ireland), Kate De Goldi (NZ), Roddy Doyle (Ireland), Geoff Dyer (UK), Oliver Jeffers (US), Anne Kennedy (US/NZ) and Jesmyn Ward (US), for this unmissable session.
Inspired by the phrase “What the Dickens?”, which originates from Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor, and nods to the 200th birthday of Charles Dickens, expect laughter, tears, thoughtfulness and provocation in this engaging session mirroring the storytelling phenomenon sweeping the globe.
MC: Carol Hirschfeld.
