If you live in Auckland don’t miss this year’s Writers & Readers Festival at the Aotea Centre, May 15 – 19. I’ll be chairing a free event, a panel discussion called Fifty Shades Of WTF. Along with novelists Eleanor Catton and Shehan Karunatilaka, and journalist Sarah Stuart we’ll be looking at what lies behind the publishing sensation of 2012. Should be an interesting and lively discussion. For more on the festival click here.
