Are you a fan of mysteries?
The Ngaio Marsh Awards and Wellington City Libraries invites 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)
This year’s panel includes author Jennifer Lane!
Jennifer Lane’s debut novel, All Our Secrets, is the story of 11-year-old Gracie Barrett and her life in small town Australia in the 1980s. With religious tensions, serial murders and all the complications of being on the cusp of teenagehood, All Our Secrets is a work of insight and high excitement.
Book Review: All Our Secrets – The Reader, December 13, 2017
All Our Secrets was the winner of the Best First Novel Award at the Ngaio Marsh Awards, and has been described as “a hugely enjoyable mash-up of small town horror and coming-of-age story, with plenty of quirky and sometimes downright weird humour thrown in.” Lane has also published widely in journals across Aotearoa/New Zealand and Australia, including Southerly, Pulp, Viola Beadleton’s Compendium and Island.
So join us on Saturday, 13 April at 6pm at Karori Library to hear Jennifer Lane, Kirsten McDougall, Dame Fiona Kidman, Kelly Dennett and chairperson Brannavan Gnanalingam discuss some fantastic works of mystery!
