Waiheke Book Festival is back!
WORDS ON A SMALL ISLAND
Waiheke Book Festival - 9-12 October 2014
We've fixed the date for your favourite book festival, so make sure you keep 9-12 October free and help us Spread the Word.
This year we're springing into action a month earlier but we still have the same great line-up of writers and events to inspire and engage!
The full programme of talks, workshops and discussions is almost ready to announce, but here's a sneak preview:
Craig Potton - greenie, photographer and Aotearoa's largest independent publisher
Michael Corballis - psychologist and author with his new book, The Wandering Mind
Lindsey Dawson - sharing how to research and create your own family story
For more details and information visit EVENTFINDA and put Waiheke Book Festival in the search to find all our events. We often sell out of the favourite events so make sure you get in early and secure your ticket now.
