Wellington Writers Walk 21st Anniversary Event

13th May @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Wellington Writers Walk is 21 years old this year! To celebrate this auspicious occasion, we are holding a very special event with two of New Zealand’s most celebrated authors, Elizabeth Knox and Dame Fiona Kidman. These writers, along with Tanya Ashcroft (author, broadcaster and Writers Walk committee member), will talk about the creation, history and future of this wonderful Wellington institution and the part they’ve played in making the walk the much-loved success it is.
The walk along Wellington’s beautiful, famed waterfront pedestrian precinct is considered by many as “one of the world’s loveliest urban land-and-seascapes”. It consists of sculptural quotations situated in picturesque locations from the writings of a selection of iconic New Zealand authors – both past and contemporary. The walk celebrates and commemorates the place of Wellington in these writers’ lives, and their place in the life of Wellington.
* Please arrive early as seating is limited.
