Writers Centre Open Afternoon
Sunday 24 March 2013, 1pm - 4pm
Meet some great writers at the Michael King Writers’ Centre open afternoon this weekend.
Bring your friends and family and celebrate NZ Book Month with a visit to the Michael King Writers’ Centre and hear some of Devonport’s local poets and writers read. Writers will include our current writer in residence Deborah Shepard, visiting writer Scott Bainbridge (who writes about NZ criminal cold cases), poet Sonja Yelich and novelist Tessa Duder.
The centre will be open from 1 pm to 4 pm and the readings will be from 2 pm, followed by tea and coffee.
Look around the historic Signalman’s House, enjoy the garden and the views, and look through the collection of literary and historical memorabilia.
The open day is hosted by the Devonport Friends of the Michael King Writers’ Centre. This is a free event and all are welcome. The centre is half way up the road to the summit of Mt Victoria in Devonport. Here’s a map. http://www.writerscentre.org.nz/contact_us.php
