Murder in the Library - Christchurch - 1 June 2016
The Ngaio Marsh Awards, in association with the New Zealand Book Council and Christchurch City Libraries, invite booklovers to an event featuring three talented Canterbury authors.
As crime writing has evolved from the puzzle-like mysteries of Agatha Christie and Christchurch's own Ngaio Marsh to modern novels delving deeply into people and places, it has continued to be the world’s most popular form of storytelling.
2016 Ngaio Marsh Awards entrants Ray Berard, Katherine Hayton, and Deborah Rogers will discuss what drew them to crime writing, how they craft memorable characters and page-turning stories, and the impact of our New Zealand setting on tales of crime and mystery.
WHEN: Wednesday, 1 June 2016
WHERE: Sydenham Room, South Library, 66 Colombo Street
WHEN: 6.30pm panel discussion
Entry: Free event but bookings required
RSVP: LibraryEvents@ccc.govt.nz or (03) 941 7923
