Join two writers whose innate sense of curiosity produces insightful works of fiction and essay. Paula Morris’s accolades include the New Zealand Post Book Award for her novel, Rangatira, and her latest book, False River, gathers a bouquet of internationally acclaimed short stories and essays. Tina Makereti’s first book Where the Rēkohu Bone Sings is a favourite of book clubs and her new novel, The Imaginary Lives of James Poneke, like Rangatira, grapples with the challenging subject of Māori exhibited in Victorian England. Both are outspoken and energetic advocates for books and writers, especially Māori and Pasifika writers. They talk to writer Nic Low.
