Saturday @ the festival: Full on!

Higson signingThe immersion technique has taken on new meaning as the team went to almost consecutive sessions all day. The 10-minute wrap up touches on nearly all of the programme:

  • Marion’s amazing morning with Colm Toibin and Thomas Keneally, a thunderstorm, and waterfalls
  • Missing out on CK Stead – he was just too popular, and we couldn’t get in
  • A disappointing Sarah Thornton session
  • Roberta enjoys Colm Toibin, meets some literary criticism magazine editors, and continues her adoration of Lionel Shriver, dallied with Dick Frizzell and John Reynolds
  • Bronwyn The Angry Librarian’s delight at Charlie Higson, and enjoyment of the Rachael King and Paula Morris session as well as Script to screen, with Witi Ihimaera
  • Richard saw Damien Wilkins and Emily Perkins, and a strong contingent of Canterbury poets


Keep your comments coming. Sunday is the last day of the festival, so you won’t have much longer to ask us questions!
