Part artist lecture, part interactive performance, this one-off New Zealand show spans Miranda July’s journey from fledgling artist in Portland, Oregon, to award-winning film-maker and bestselling author.

July’s film Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005) won the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and a Special Jury Prize at Sundance. Her short-story collection, No One Belongs Here More Than You (2008), won the prestigious Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and is published in 23 countries. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review and Harper’s, and her debut novel, The First Bad Man, was an immediate New York Times bestseller.

July’s artworks include the website Learning to Love You More (with Harrell Fletcher) and the messaging app Somebody, which gets strangers to deliver your messages in person.

Like so much of July’s work, Lost Child! will test your perceptions of art, literature and most likely yourself.

Partnered by New Zealand Listener with support from the Embassy of the United States of America,

New Zealand Festival Writers Week supporters include The Lion Foundation, Victoria University of Wellington, QT Museum Wellington and Creative NZ.
