Pulitizer Prize Winner Heading to Christchurch and OCTOBER WRITING WORKSHOPS

Pulitizer Prize Winner Heading to Christchurch



WORD Christchurch and Bookenz, in association with Hachette NZ, are proud to present an evening with Pulitzer prize-winning writer Geraldine Brooks, in conversation with Morrin Rout.

With more than two million copies of her novels sold, Australian-American author and journalist Geraldine Brooks has achieved both popular and critical acclaim. She has worked for the Wall Street Journal, where she covered crises in the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans. In 2006 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her novel March, which imagines the life of the patriarch of Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic Little Women, who leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause in the Civil War.

Full of drama and richly drawn detail, Brooks’ new novel The Secret Chord is a vivid story of faith, family, desire and power that brings the legend of King David magnificently alive. More information.

Wednesday 18 November, 7.30pm
Merivale Lane Theatre (Rangi Ruru School)
