This year's Auckland Writers Festival programme was announced last week. It's a particularly special year for the festival, which has now been going for 20 years.

Cynthia Morahan spoke with Festival Director Anne O’Brien, and began by asking her who was in the 2020 lineup.

16-03-2020 Auckland Writers Festival regrets to advise the cancellation of its May 2020 festival, owing to the critical Covid-19 situation and the Government’s new limits on mass public gatherings.
