This lecture aims to deliver an overview of the ‘state of the nation’ for literature and writing in New Zealand, raising the profile of our authors and leading to a greater understanding of what it means to be a writer in New Zealand.
One of New Zealand’s foremost novelists for young people, multi-award winning William Taylor has published more than thirty novels.
Owen Marshall gave the inaugural lecture in 2007, followed by Greg O’Brien last year.
The lecture is jointly sponsored by the New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc) and Random House New Zealand, and takes place as part of New Zealand Book Month.
