Airini Beautrais meets one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most celebrated fiction writers Patricia Grace (Ngati Toa, Ngati Raukawa and Te Ati Awa); editor of The Best Short Stories 2023, US author Lauren Groff, and Ockham NZ Book Awards longlisted author of Ruin and Other Stories Emma Hislop (Kāi Tahu) to discuss.
