Are you a fan of mysteries?

The Ngaio Marsh Awards and Wellington City Libraries invite you to Mystery in the Library, a fantastic (and free!) after-hours event featuring four outstanding and highly acclaimed local storytellers.

WHEN: Saturday 13 April 2019
WHERE: Karori Library (Please note the new location for this event)
WHEN: 6pm–7.30pm

This year’s panel includes author Kirsten McDougall!

We are totally thrilled to have the award-winning Wellington author Kirsten McDougall as one of our illustrious mystery writers panellists. McDougall’s critically-acclaimed book Tess is a wonderful, multi-layered can of worms, and Wairarapa’s answer to Southern Ontario Gothic. As The Listener describes it, “Tess is authentically, affectingly abrasive and vulnerable. The physical world is alive and jumping, and the narrative never lets go of your throat.”

As well as Tess, McDougall has published The Invisible Rider, as well as short stories and non-fiction in a range of books and journals. She has also given several excellent interviews about her writing process–including this great piece in The Pantograph Punch.

So join us on Saturday, 13 April at 6pm at Karori Library to hear Kirsten McDougall, Dame Fiona Kidman, Jennifer Lane, Kelly Dennett and chairperson Brannavan Gnanalingam discuss some fantastic works of mystery!
