We are sorry to say that due to ongoing COVID restrictions and complications, this event is now cancelled.
WORD is thrilled to welcome one of the internet’s most popular book podcasts. Backlisted is ‘the podcast that gives new life to old books’ and has gathered a legion of loyal followers for its warmth, humour and erudition. Now The Faraway Near gives you a seat at the table. Each episode John Mitchinson and Andy Miller discuss a backlisted title with a special guest, who chooses the book. For WORD, writer Paula Morris will choose a New Zealand book and will appear with our live audience, while the podcasters beam in from Backlisted HQ in England. Grab a coffee and some friends and settle in for a rare treat.
