Mere Whaanga and David Veart in conversation

A Devonport Library Associates event, in association with the Michael King Writers' Centre

Devonport author and archaeologist David Veart speaks with Mere Whaanga, the current writer in residence at the Michael King Writers' Centre. Whaanga is writing a novel, Legacy of the Seer, about three generations of Maori psychics in rural Hawkes Bay.
