Crime Fiction Down Under

Jack Heath, Paul Cleave and J P Pomare
Chair: Gareth Ward

Crime fiction is one of the most popular genres of literature today. Australian author Jack Heath (Hangman and Hunter); Christchurch author Paul Cleave (the Theodore Tate series); and Melbourne-based Kiwi author J P Pomare (Call Me Evie) discuss what is it about crime that makes such page-turning reading and whether these books have more to say than just ‘who done it’.

Telling Tales with Pictures

Children and adults alike enjoy picture books. From simple fairy tales, to complex graphic novels, art can tell stories in ways limited only by the imagination. Enjoy the conversation between two Kiwi illustrators, Donovan Bixley (The Wheels on the Bus, Flying Furrballs), and Craig Phillips (Giants! Trolls! Witches! Beasts!) as they discuss the relationship between words and pictures and how they create stories through images.
