Who's on the Couch? Witi Ihimaera

SORRY. EVENT NOW SOLD OUT!

Saturday 11 June 2022, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM, Kiwi Hall. $15


Witi Ihimaera is the first Māori writer to publish both a book of short stories and a novel.


He considers “the world I’m in as Māori, not European” and his fiction has grown out of this perspective.


For fifty years, Witi Ihimaera has created imaginative new realities for Aotearoa New Zealand readers, anchored firmly in te ao Māori.


Join Witi in conversation with Peter Biggs on the couch in the Kiwi Hall as he guides us through his world of writing and life experience.
