WORD Christchurch

‘I may be an old woman,’ she wrote in the Guardian last year, ‘but I’m not done for yet.’ At 78, Helen Garner has been a formidable voice in Australian literature for decades, with novels including "Monkey Grip" and "The Spare Room", and hard-hitting non-fiction such as "This House of Grief" and 1995’s controversial "The First Stone", about a sexual-harassment scandal in a university college. Now she has started breaking open her diaries – including the latest volume, "How to End a Story" – which vividly record a life of hard work and tumultuous relationships, and which explore professional and personal earthquakes. She discusses her life and work, live from her home in Melbourne, with broadcaster and former festival director Morrin Rout.

Please note: This event is general admission. Guests will be seated upon arrival. The safety of our audience is paramount: please arrive early, scan in and wear a mask. Audience numbers are capped under COVID Alert Level 2 and social distancing measures will be in place within each venue.
