Talks & ideas

Momentous moves or daily small calls. Carefully considered from all angles or made on the fly. Our lives and paths are shaped by choices.

In the Festival’s major opening night event, eight stellar writers speak to a moment of choice that led them to where – and who - they are today. 

Featuring: Viet Thanh Nguyen; Richard Flanagan; Elizabeth Acevedo; Abraham Verghese; Selina Tusitala Marsh and Becky Manawatu.

Tickets on sale Fri 15 Mar, 9am
