Please join us for the Wellington celebration of Ko Aotearoa Tātou | We Are New Zealand: An Anthology. Thursday, 3 December 2020, 6.00–7.30pm GOOD BOOKS, 2/16 Jessie Street, Te Aro, Wellington In the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attacks of 15 March 2019, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern declared: ‘We are all New Zealanders.’ These words resonated, an instant meme that asserted our national diversity and inclusiveness and, at the same time, issued a rebuke to hatred and divisiveness.

Ko Aotearoa Tātou | We Are New Zealand shares new works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and visual art created in response to the editors’ questions: What is New Zealand now, in all its rich variety and contradiction, darkness and light? Who are New Zealanders?

The book will be introduced by editor Michelle Elvy, with presentations from writers and artists who contributed to this new volume of work. Featuring: Jennifer Halli, Zainaa Hilal, Fiona Lincoln, Catarina de Peters Leitão, Hanif Quazi, Sudha Rao, Ellie Stiggers, Apirana Taylor, Stacey Teague

Copies will be available for purchase at the event. Drinks and nibbles provided. All welcome!
