LIGHTHOUSE PR TO PROMOTE THIS YEAR’S AUCKLAND WRITERS & READERS FESTIVAL
Lorraine Steele and Sarah Gumbley of book PR company Lighthouse PR are thrilled to announce they will be handling the publicity for the Auckland Writers & Readers Festival this year - and what a festival it is going to be!
The Festival will run from 15 - 19 May, with the Schools Programme on 15 and 16 May and the NZ Listener Gala Night on 16 May with three wonderful days of programming 17 - 19 May.
Renowned international writers Kate Atkinson (left, photo by Martin Hunter) and Ben Goldacre are already confirmed as attending, and the full Festival programme will be announced on the 20 March.
Lighthouse PR was launched on 31 October last year by book publicist Lorraine Steele and social media whizz Sarah Gumbley, and specialises in book publicity and marketing. ‘We’re both keen festival goers and avid readers and can’t wait to promote the exciting news about this year’s Festival line-up’ says Sarah.
