Writers on Monday - Anne Kennedy
WRITERS ON MONDAYS is back
The Time of Anne Kennedy
We are delighted to have Anne Kennedy in Pōneke as the Victoria University of Wellington Creative New Zealand Writer in Residence. Kennedy’s work spans genre and time in ways that seem unique in our literature. Her first book, the experimental novel 100 Traditional Smiles, was published in 1989 and since then she has continued to deny easy categorisation, writing film, award-winning poetry, and fiction that time-travels from the 12th-century mystic Hildegard of Bingen, to a five-week power black-out in 1990s Auckland and almost everywhere in between. Join Pip Adam in a discussion about the times Kennedy writes in and about, and how different genres require a writer to use time in different ways.
DATE: Monday 11 July TIME: 12.15 - 1.1pm VENUE: Te Papa Marae, Level 4, Te Papa
Writers on Mondays is presented with the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, National Poetry Day and Circa Theatre.
