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.

Uprooted from his privileged European life and sent to New Zealand to sort himself out, 21-year-old Daniel pieces together the history of his Māori family and learns of the remarkable love story between his Māori grandmother, Oriwia, and his Japanese grandfather, Chappy.

This is the first novel in 10 years from acclaimed writer Patricia Grace, who brings her usual wisdom, sensitivity and insight to the themes of racial intolerance, cross-cultural conflicts and the universal desire to belong, against the backdrop of several decades of change in New Zealand.

Patricia Grace DCNZM, QSO is in conversation with Kerensa Johnston from Wakatu Incorporation.
