Book-related guests on Saturday Morning with Kim Hill 27 February - Radio NZ National

The New Zealand Internationa Festival of the Arts opens in Wellington tonight, and on tomorrow's programme, Kim speaks with two festival guests.

Dean Wareham is a former member of Galaxie 500 and Luna, and the author of Black Postcards: a Rock & Roll Romance (Penguin Press). Now based in New York, he performs as Dean and Britta with his wife Britta Phillips; they bring their film/live music performance, 13 Most Beautiful: Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests, to the Festival on 4 March.

Australian writer Margo Lanagan, whose dark stories for younger readers (most recently the novel Tender Morsels) have sparked controversy, will be here for Writers and Readers week (8-14 March)

Also on the programme is New Yorker writer Ken Auletta; his latest book is Googled: The End of the World As We Know It.
