Last Festival’s National Library of New Zealand Poet Laureate event sold out, so be quick to join us for another scintillating evening of poetry.
This year the New Zealand Poet Laureate, Selina Tusitala Marsh, performs her epic "The Queen’s Sequence", inspired by her meeting Queen Elizabeth II in 2016 and other queens.
After interval refreshments, she will be joined on stage by fellow poets Tusiata Avia, Serie Barford and former Laureate Jenny Bornholdt to share selected readings, with poet Paula Green as chair.
In association with the National Library of New
Zealand and Te Mata Estate Winery
