Enjoy the luxurious surroundings of The Terraces while you listen and converse with recent award winning author, Becky Manawatu. Becky’s short story ‘Abalone’ was long-listed for the 2018 Commonwealth Short Story Prize and her essay ‘Mothers Day’, was selected for the Landfall anthology ‘Strong Words’.

‘Auē’, her first novel, won the novel of the year prize at this year’s Ockham NZ Book awards.

This will be an intimate event with the opportunity to get close and ask questions.
