Last night the programme for the 2015 Auckland Writers Festival was released and people gave a collective squee. Haruki Murakami is the headliner. This is doubly exciting – he is one of the best writers of our time and he doesn’t appear much on the literary festival circuit. We are not worthy, but we are excited.
And there are more names, names, names:
- David Walliams
- Alan Cumming
- Atul Gawande
- Helen Macdonald
- Tiny Ruins
- David Mitchell
- Captain Underpants (aka Dav Pilkey)
- Nalini Singh
