THE FRENCH CONNECTION
Sunday 22 November 2009 from 1-2.30 pm
FREE SESSION at Dunedin Public Art Gallery, 30 The Octagon, Dunedin
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Katherine Mansfield Menton Fellowship, now known as the New Zealand Post Mansfield Prize, Dunedin Art Gallery hosts a panel session with Owen Marshall, Philip Temple, Fiona Farrell, (pic left at Oamaru Library), and current Burns Fellows, Michael Harlow.
These prominent South Island writers will talk about their experiences of living in France, writing in a room at the Villa Isola Bella where Mansfield once lived, and about the impact this unique fellowship has had on their literary career.
Chair: Richard Cathie
This session is dedicated to the late Janet Frame who was also a previous holder of the fellowship.
