More Mina at NZ International Arts Festival

As I shared last year, acclaimed Scottish crime writer Denise Mina (END OF THE WASP SEASON) will be coming to New Zealand next month as part of the New Zealand International Arts Festival. It's great to see the Festival embracing international and local crime fiction so strongly this year.

Previously I've talked about Mina's solo event, and one she is doing with American author Ron Rash on the place of place in writing. Now, I'm very pleased to share that festival attendees will have even more opportunities to see Mina while she is in Wellington - she will be part of four events at the Festival:
So, along with talking about her own writing and Scottish crime fiction, and the place of place, festival attendees will also get to hear Mina discuss and debate the rise of e-books and what this may mean for publishing (the Monday event), and explore the ever-changing, ever-expanding world of comics, fantasy and popular culture - as some of you will be aware, Mina was chosen by Stieg Larsson’s literary estate to adapt the Millennium trilogy into six graphic novels.

Looks like a great line-up of events. Unfortunately I will only be in Wellington for two of them, but I'll be making sure to get along and see Mina in person. What about you? Comments welcome.
