The inaugural Wordy Day Out hosted at The University of Auckland delighted a multitude of people whose interest veered towards YA literature. Bernard Beckett, Cassandra Clare, Brian Falkner, Mandy Hager, David Hair, Karen Healey, Margo Lanagan, Paula Morris, Garth Nix, Meg Rosoff and Sean Williams wowed the crowds, signed their books and kicked off this inaugural event in style.
We look forward to more of the same next year – and a whole lot more of the new, diverse and wonderful writing, ideas and language, memories and lives that some of the world’s and New Zealand’s finest novelists, poets and non-fiction authors will share with hungry minds.
This year was a huge, happy success and we thank you for your part in it.
