Historical Fictions at Oamaru

The Friends of the Janet Frame House at Oamaru are running another of their much-appreciated writing workshops later this week. The guest writer on Saturday March 24th will be the celebrated South Island short story writer and novelist Owen Marshall.

On Friday night (the 23rd March) at 6 pm in the Oamaru Library there will be "a free public lecture on historical fiction with reference to Marshall's new novel The Larnachs."

Owen Marshall will be addressing this topic of historical fiction together with Dr Paul Baker, the former Rector of the local Waitaki Boys' High School.

Here's a link to more information, in a recent report by the Otago Daily Times: (3 March 2012).
