WORD Christchurch, in association with Auckland Writers Festival, presents a very special evening with Liane Moriarty, author of the smash international hits Big Little Lies, Truly Madly Guilty, The Husband’s Secret and many more. Her latest novel, Nine Perfect Strangers, explores the depth of connection that can be formed when people are thrown together in unconventional circumstances. Big Little Lies became the celebrated television series starring Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Nicole Kidman and it picked up five Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Lead Actress for Kidman in her role as Celeste. Liane’s books have sold over fourteen million copies worldwide, including two million in Australia and New Zealand. The Piano bar will be open beforehand, so grab some friends and a glass of wine, and join us for a magical night of stories, including the one about how Liane wrote a character especially to entice Meryl Streep to appear in season two of Big Little Lies! Everyone who buys a ticket goes in the draw to win a special pack of Liane Moriarty books. Lianne Moriarty appears in conversation with book lover Jo Malcolm, and her books will be available for purchase and signing on the night from UBS.
