Going for “facts and genre” at The Press Christchurch Writers Festival

In so many words is a panel discussion on social media and books at The Press Christchurch Writers Festival. It’s on Thursday 30 August 4.30pm at the Literary PleasureDome aka the Geo Dome in Hagley Park.

On the panel are bloggers (and tweeters) Lara Strongman, Moata Tamaira, Will Harvie and me . It’ll be chaired by Graham “Bookman” Beattie and promises to be informative, banterrific and hey it’s FREE! Come along and listen, and ask questions and share your opinions.

The Press’s Will Harvie is a self-proclaimed “facts and genre kind of guy”. Here are his festival picks

I’m looking forward to many of the non-fiction speakers, especially the Antarctica panel on Friday, John Lancaster and Rod Oram on economics, and Joe Bennett of course. Joanne Drayton on Anne Perry looks good and it will be hard to miss Marianne Elliott and Nicky Hager on Afghanistan.

On the fiction side, I’m catching Owen Marshall with Kate Grenville, Emily Perkins and Sue Woolfe; An Hour with Emily Perkins; the Fatal Attraction panel, The Crime Debate, and Joanne Harris.
