Celebrate New Zealand women winning the right to vote.

On the 19th September 125 years ago a new Electoral Act was signed into law and New Zealand became the first self-governing country in the world to grant all adult women the right to vote in parliamentary elections.

This event, exactly 125 years later, celebrates women authors; their talent, determination and tenacity to tell ‘our’ stories in order that women of their generation and beyond recognize themselves and feel collective strength through these vital and familiar narratives.

Readings from ‘Bloomsbury Women and the Wild Colonial Girl':
Playwright Lorae Parry has selected some of the most colourful passages of her play ‘Bloomsbury Women and the Wild Colonial Girl’ about the relationship between Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf. Readings by Lorae Parry and actor Carmel McGlone.

Stay for book signing and Q&A with Lorae and Carmel.

Parry’s Katherine Mansfield, the ‘colonial’ girl at large in a hard and dazzling world takes us close to ‘the real thing’… does justice to the amusing, clever, compassionate, constantly self-examining personality it engages with. And it shows us Virginia Woolf as well in a freshly slanting light. – Vincent O’Sullivan
