An opportunity to meet Whiti Hereaka - Thursday 23 February, 7.30pm at Devonport Library
The Devonport Library Associates warmly invite you to an evening with Whiti Hereaka, prize-winning scriptwriter, dramatist, and successful novelist. Whiti will talk about her views on the craft of writing scripts and plays.
Whiti is the current writer-in-residence at the Michael King Writers' Centre. She holds the eight-week Summer Residency at the centre, where she is hard at work on her next play, which is about about making rewena. In the play she plans to explore the idea of hospitality, of Maori and Pakeha “breaking bread” and how breadmaking is a part of colonial history that has been embraced by Maoridom.
This is a free event and all are welcome.
Thursday 23 February - drinks and nibbles at 7.30pm.
A brief AGM of the Devonport Library Associates at 8.00pm
Whiti Hereaka talk at 8.15pm.
