Auckland Writers and Readers Festival (AWRF)

The 2008 AWRF starts on 14 May.  Creative Directors Peter Wells and Stephanie Johnson’s catch cry for this year’s event is “Let’s talk up a storm”.  With nineteen internationals and over ninety New Zealand based writers, editors and publishers, a veritable gale, with diverse, stimulating and entertaining weather patterns, is predicted. I’m appearing on a panel with Dominican-American Junot Díaz and Chinese-Welsh Peter Ho Davies.  We’re in the ASB Theatre - Aotea Centre, 15 May, 4.30-5.30pm.  Our session is entitled Bloodlines: Do genetics dictate story?  James George is the Chair.
