Hamish Clayton, Thom Conroy and Laurence Patchett

Kāpiti’s history is now – at least in the world of fiction. Join three exciting new writers in conversation about their various takes on Kāpiti in history and fiction. Hamish Clayton’s Wulf, set partly on eighteenth-century Kāpiti, won the 2012 NZSA Hubert Church Best First Book Award for Fiction. Thom Conroy, Senior Lecturer at Massey, is currently at work on a historical novel entitled The Naturalist which transports us to nineteenth-century Kāpiti. His short fiction has appeared in journals in the US and New Zealand, and has been recognised by Best American Short Stories 2012. In Lawrence Patchett’s I Got His Blood On Me, which won the 2013 NZSA Hubert Church Best First Book Award for Fiction, Kāpiti’s present and past are allowed to inhabit the same frame.
