Page & Blackmore
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.

What’s happened in this country of ours?

We used to pride ourselves on the Kiwi ethic of equality, but now the widening gap between rich and poor is setting a world speed record. What does this mean for the way we live our lives? What of our children and their future? Can philanthropy replace state funding and do we want it to? What could help to stop the gap or to bridge it?

Join visiting writers Stephanie Johnson, Patricia Grace, Gerard Hindmarsh, Victory Community Centre Manager Kindra Douglas, and former politican Philip Woollaston of Mahana Estates, chaired by visiting actor and writer, Arthur Meek.

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!
Join us at 10.30am for brunch for an extra $12.

Listen later to selected sessions broadcast on Fresh FM.
