One of New Zealand's most celebrated authors, Kate De Goldi’s short fiction, novels and picture books engage children, teenagers and adults alike.

Novel The 10pm Question was published to critical acclaim, quickly becoming an iconic piece of New Zealand literature. Her latest, Eddy, Eddy is being met with similar excitement. Described as a coming-of-age story, love story, earthquake story and a story of finding your way back from grief, this richly layered novel follows orphan Eddy Smallbone as he grapples with identity, love, loss and religion.

De Goldi is marking the release of the novel with a series of national speaking events and writing workshops.
