Readers and Writers

We invite you to sit back and listen as the writers who populate your thoughts read, talk or converse. Ask questions, have your books signed and browse the Page & Blackmore bookstall.

Golden Bay writer Gerard Hindmarsh celebrates this under-appreciated fish in his latest book.

There’s history, plenty of fishing stories and tips on how to catch these beautiful, fighting fish. The bag limit is 20, there’s no minimum size - Kahawai is truly ‘the people’s fish’.

Catch it, then eat it - the book has over 30 recipes from Melanie Walker. Prepared properly, Kahawai is delicious, and if they’ve been running in the Bay you may be in for a small but tasty treat.

Gerard and Melanie are in conversation with Cawthron scientist and lifetime fisherman John Hayes.

Hear More for Less with the Readers & Writers’ Concession Card. Attend up to 12 sessions for $90 full price, $60 seniors (plus TicketDirect service fees). Excludes the Thinking Brunches. Concession cards can only be purchased at Nelson’s Theatre Royal.

Come early to order coffee - when the talking begins the machine is turned off!

Listen later to selected sessions broadcast on Fresh FM.
