A new literary festival for Dunedin with an exciting line-up of top New Zealand and international writers, including a variety of events: readings, conversations, children’s sessions and more.

Young Adult Writers' Panel.

Melinda Szymanik and Sandy McKay both published historical novels for young adults in 2013.
A Winter’s Day in 1939 is Szymanik’s story of her Polish father’s time in Russian work camps during the Second World War. McKay has also written of the wartime experiences of a family member in When Our Jack Went to War, which takes the form of letters between two brothers, one at war and one at home.

The writers will talk about their books, the experience of writing them and the connection young readers today feel when reading stories of the past.

Chaired by Bridget Schaumann, Librarian at King’s High School, Dunedin.
