Literaturhaus: Five Days of Reading, Readings and Events


Wellington City Libraries is pleased to announce that we will be hosting events for the temporary Literaturhaus running from 7th February to 11th February 2012.

These events include preschool story times, poetry readings, and two lunch-time events of short readings from current work by upcoming and established writers and translators, and will take place at the Central Library.

One of the highlights: on Wednesday 8th February at 6.15pm, well known Wellington writers, including Elizabeth Knox, Hinemoana Baker, Apirana Taylor and Fiona Kidman will give their unique take on Grimm-inspired themes.

This mobile literary festival has been arranged to celebrate New Zealand being guest of honour at the world’s largest book fair in Frankfurt later this year.
