As a special one-off-event, we are pleased to host Wellington writer Rhydian Thomas for a public reading of his debut book Milk Island. Described by Lawrence & Gibson's editor Murdoch Stephens as 'a dystopian near-future novel', Milk Island is set in New Zealand with the 2023 election quickly approaching.

Within Thomas's humorous and speculative narrative his four main characters become embroiled in a web of prisons, politics, tourism, and the media. Will Milky Moo, the nation's favourite genetically enhanced super-cow, survive this very black comedy about death and dairying?

Live-streaming from the gallery throughout the day, Thomas will situate the concerns of his fictional narrative against the actual context of the 2017 General Election. Place your vote and then visit the Adam Art Gallery throughout the day to hear Thomas's spoken performance. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served.

All welcome.

Milk Island contains strong language and content which may offend.
