Writing Outsiders

  • Te Auaha, Tapere Iti 65 Dixon Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Anna Smaill leads a discussion with writers skilled at creating outsiders. Amy Head’s new novel Rotoroa shows the intertwining of three people as they push through tough times in their lives in a quiet, isolated setting. Dame Fiona Kidman’s fascinating new book This Mortal Boy looks at the life of the last person to be executed in New Zealand. Rob Doyle’s This is the Ritual tells the stories of outsiders as they navigate life in various desperate and eccentric ways. A special panel about a theme we can all relate to if we look deep enough.
