Stellar writers spin true stories at LitCrawl event in Wellington
Writers Nicky Hager, Mandy Hager, Phillip Mann, Lotta Dann, Danyl Mclauchlan and Paul Diamond are the stellar line-up at the New Zealand Book Council’s True Stories Told Live event on 15 November in Wellington.
Presented in partnership with LitCrawl, True Stories Told Live puts a modern spin on the ancient art of storytelling. It will be an evening of unabashed storytelling, totally unscripted, where anything can happen.
Our six imaginative and inspirational storytellers will each spin a true tale on the theme of ‘Moving on’ live at the Embassy Theatre. This free event will be part of a vibrant evening of New Zealand literature, with LitCrawl taking words to the streets of Wellington.
The Book Council’s True Stories Told Live events have been exhilarating and entertaining audiences for years. Our latest event at the City Gallery brought Māori writers, artists, musicians and politicians together to entertain a packed audience with surprising, dramatic, funny and moving true stories.

Books and reading change lives. Writers shape our culture. We spread the word.
Established in 1972, the New Zealand Book Council is the country’s leading national charity dedicated to supporting our reading and writing culture. Our mission is to champion the lifelong engagement of New Zealanders in reading, and to lead the promotion and nurturing of New Zealand writers, writing and books.
“Not only does the Book Council talk the talk, it walks the talk. I'm constantly amazed at the range of work it does for our books and writers. What would the industry do without it? One great activity it organises is for writers to go into schools. A real author in the classroom? You can't get better than that.’’ – Witi Ihimaera
