Auckland Writers Festival launches in spectacularly entertaining style

Under the banner - True Stories Told Live: The Heart of the Matter - eight authors from around the world opened the Auckland Writers Festival last night to a packed house in the ASB Theatre. at the Aotea Centre..

The audience was delighted as the authors each took their allocated seven minutes to deliver a true story. It was entertainment at its very best and all the authors enjoyed thunderous applause at the conclusion of their pieces.

The authors were:
Glenn Colquhoun (NZ), Ivan Coyote (Canada), Anne Enright (Ireland), Ha Jin (China), Lloyd Geering (NZ),  Mpho Tutu van Furth (South Africa), Gina Cole (NZ), and Ian Rankin (Scotland).
