C.K.Stead visits Wellington

C.K.Stead visits Wellington

Join us for a journey . beyond biography

The New Zealand Book Council and Random House NZ are pleased to announce an evening with writer, literary critic and essayist C.K.Stead. Stead will discuss and read from his new novel 'Mansfield'.

Drawn from many years of study, C.K. Stead has created an extraordinary picture of three important years in the life of Katherine Mansfield (1915-1919). In this fictionalised account, Katherine is on the verge of literary success, she has fallen in love with a young soldier and has met some of the larger than life characters from England's intelligencia.

Stead reveals Katherine's bright and inquisitive nature, grappling with a time of upheaval, fledgling love and tragic loss. The result is a vivid portrait of one of our most loved literary icons.

C.K.Stead has won many literary awards, published a wide body of work and has edited Journals of Katherine Mansfield and Penguin Modern Classics Letters. This is his tenth novel.

Join C.K.Stead in conversation with Greg O'Brien at National Library Auditorium Wellington, 6pm, Tuesday 11 May. Tickets are on sale now.
