Pasifika voices are among the most powerful in Aotearoa's New Zealand literary scene – original, provocative, funny, uplifting and heartbreaking. This will be a Saturday night you will remember with four leading Pasifika writers – Victor Rodger, Nafanua Purcell Kersel, Tusiata Avia and Gina Cole – reading their own work and riffing with Makerita Urale.

Supported by Creative New Zealand.

Gaylene Live
8:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Dame Gaylene Preston is celebrated as a leading film-maker, having produced and directed some of the most enduring popular classics of Aotearoa New Zealand cinema – think Ruby and Rata, War Stories our Mother Never Told Us, My Year with Helen. Join Ockham Book Awards shortlisted author Noelle McCarthy in conversation with one of this country’s most celebrated storytellers, whose work has a distinctive flavour that entertains while presenting serious subjects with humour and warmth.

Proudly supported by Tim Clarke and Tessa O’Rorke.

Late Nite Lit: Poet’s Corner

Experience some of the best poets and poetry in Aotearoa NZ – Poet Laureate Chris Tse, Sam Duckor-Jones, Frankie Leota, Rachel Buchanan and Debbie Broughton – while enjoying stellar local wine by Big Sky Wines and an ongoing grazing table … so you can feed the body as well as the mind.
