David Levithan is an award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of YA books, including Are We There Yet? and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn), recently made into a film.

He is the founding editor of the PUSH imprint at Scholastic Books, which is devoted to finding new voices in teen literature. In Boy Meets Boy, his first novel, he "set out to write a book about gay teens that doesn't conform to the old norms about gay teens in literature".

His latest collaborative novel, co-written with John Green (author of Paper Towns), is Will Grayson, Will Grayson (May 2010), about which Australian author Melina Marchetta says: "This is one of my top three reads of the year. It has everything I devour in a novel: heart, humour and dialogue I'd kill to have written".

Chair: Paula Morris.

Presented as a part of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.

Under 16's free when accompanied by a ticket-holder.
