The Press Christchurch Writers Festival 2012 is a four-day celebration of authors and books. It is returning to the Garden City after a four-year wait and is bringing its widest ever programme to thrill and entertain audiences.
An incredible mix of international and local writing talent will explore their work and a range of issues. Top international writers include Joanne Harris (UK), author of Peaches for Monsieur Le Curé; John Boyne (Ireland), author of The Absolutist and The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket; and award-winning writers Chris Cleave (UK) and Kate Grenville (Australia). There is also a strong line-up of New Zealand writers, including Emily Perkins, Keri Hulme, Tim Wilson, Laurence Fearnley, Cilla McQueen and Nicky Hager.
