Karen Healey speaking at the Marlborough Book Festival.

Karen has been critically acclaimed as “one of the best young adult authors of our time”, and as luck would have it she moved to Marlborough earlier this year to teach English at Marlborough Girls’ College.

Karen won the Aurealis Award for Best Young Adult Novel in 2010 for Guardian of the Dead, and also won the Sir Julius Vogel Award Winner: Best New Talent in 2011. She has been nominated for a 2014 New Zealand Post Book award for young adult literature for When We Wake. She launched the second book in this series, While We Run, in April. She is also the author of The Shattering.

The session is open to all ages, but would be a particularly good opportunity for teenagers and young adults to be inspired by a popular author.
