Going West with words

From Upbeat, 1:30 pm on 18 August 2017

The Going West Books and Writers Festival is characterized by friendliness, intimacy, hospitality, accessibility and good food. Director Nicola Strawbridge talks about getting the right balance between community minded events, literary encounters and state-of-the-planet thinking. Opening night on 8th September features artists Norman Meehan and Hannah Griffin singing the words of Bill Manhire, with more poetry highlighted by the launch of a book celebrating forty years of poetry in Titirangi, the home of Going West festival.
