Vanda Symon to deliver Ngaio Marsh Memorial Lecture
The inaugural lecture was given in 2012 by Elric Hooper MBE, a renowned New Zealand stage actor, director, and teacher, who had appeared in several of Dame Ngaio's productions as a young man growing up in Canterbury.
Symon has told me in the past that she is a huge fan of Marsh's. In fact, Symon is currently completing postgraduate studies that centre on Marsh's use of poisons etc in her crime fiction (Symon has a background as a pharmacist).
The 2014 Memorial Lecture will be held on Sunday, April 13 at Christ's College Old Boy's Theatre.
More details to follow as they come to hand.
