WORD Christchurch Writers and Readers Festival kicks off on 27 August. We’ve asked three quick questions of festival guests:
Hinemoana Baker – poet
What (or who) are you most looking forward to at WORD Christchurch?
Apart from my own sessions (ahem) I must admit to being immoderately excited that Dave Graney is performing. I discovered him when I was in Brisbane in 2009, and his schtick weighs a ton.
What do you think about libraries?
Libraries for president! I feel the same way about libraries as other people may feel about shopping, or horse-racing, or extreme sports.
Share a surprising fact about yourself.
I once performed a synchronised swimming routine to ‘Stray Cat Strut’ by the Alley Cats. Nose peg and everything.
