Pukapuka Talks kicks off on Tuesday Oct 20 with Nelson Live Poets, featuring the extremely vibrant 80-year-old poet Rachel McAlpine, and closes with the launch of kiss me hardy, Nelson’s literary and arts journal. In between these bookends you’ll find eight discussions with authors and panel discussions, including award-winning Iranian Kurdish journalist and author Behrouz Boochani on stage with fellow Iranian refugee Golriz Ghahraman. A number of ‘Lit Crawl’ style ‘genre-bending’ events are scheduled either side of Labour Weekend, as well as two writing workshops, a poetry performance, and Annabel Langbein in discussion with local food writer Nicola Galloway about her newly released memoir, Bella: My Life in Food.
