WORD CHRISTCHURCH - Saturday programme
SATURDAY 27 AUGUST!
After a day
of buzz with people discovering the new venue in town, The Piano,
sold out sessions and two fantastic shows at the Isaac Theatre Royal
last night - book tickets you want as quickly as possible because
otherwise you may not get to hear the extraordinary range of topics
and see the writers we have programmed just for you!
As one of
our international visitors (Director of the Vancouver Writers
Festival) said yesterday of one event " I don't say
'world-class' lightly...but that session was absolutely '
world-class' ". Enjoy our world today...
