Elizabeth Knox has one of the most singular voices in New Zealand fiction. In The Absolute Book, she once again pulls off the undefinable, with an urgently relevant novel that is part fantasy, part thriller, and part meditation on books, libraries and the environment. Don’t miss her conversation with Noelle McCarthy in our own library, Tūranga, and witness this incredible mind at work.

If there is a change back to Level 2 at the time of the festival, tickets purchased under the original Level 2 requirements will be given preference.
