Award-winning author and consummate storyteller Witi Ihimaera is one of our finest writers.

Described by Metro magazine as ‘part oracle, part memorialist’, his fiction draws on his life’s experience. His latest book, Maori Boy: A Memoir of Childhood, is an honest and stirring account of the family and community into which Ihimaera was born, of his early life in rural New Zealand, of family secrets, of facing anguish and challenges, and of laughter and love.

Maori Boy: A Memoir of Childhood - Winner of the Ockham New Zealand Book Award 2016 for General Non-Fiction. Hear Ihimaera’s story and gain insights into his magnificent novels, several of which, most recently Mahana (based on Bulibasha), have been made into films.

Witi Ihimaera will be in conversation with Nelson counsellor and avid reader Liz Price.

Please note: 12 pm for lunch with a 12:30 pm start.
