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!
