Christchurch Writers Festival 27-31 August

The Christchurch Writers and Readers Festival, WORD, is back! This year it’s taking place from 27 to 31 August.

Here are some sessions that Cantabrian SpecFiccers might find particularly interesting:

Supernaturally – Elizabeth Knox and Laini Taylor in conversation with our very own Helen Lowe
Capes and Tights: Superhero Comics – Damon Young, Karen Healey, Jonathan King and Dylan Horrocks
The Changeover: 30 Years On – Revisiting Margaret Mahy’s YA classic with Knox and Healey
Creating Worlds: YA Readings
The Wandering Mind – what do our brains do when we’re not looking?

Your friendly SpecFicNZ publicist (yours truly) is covering the festival for BooksellersNZ, so please come say hi!
