A Celebration of the Opening of the Frankfurt Book Fair
While Frankfurt sleeps and the New Zealand Pavilion lies empty, waiting to be filled within hours by the crowds, we create another pavilion at the opposite end of the world to celebrate New Zealand as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Ours is a smaller pavilion in a borrowed lounge bar in an alley in Wellington. In this dawn pavilion—slightly off the beaten track, slightly harder to find—you can enjoy an evening of writers and translators who may also come as a pleasant surprise in the New Zealand literary cityscape. It’s not who you’d automatically expect.
Join us for literary encounters, conversation and translation, chaired and curated by Pip Adam.
Tuesday 9 October 2012, from 6.30pm. Free entry.
Meow, 9 Edward Street, Wellington
The Temporary Literaturhaus is a project of the Goethe-Institut New Zealand, the New Zealand Book Council and the New Zealand Centre for Literary Translation, with the support of Creative New Zealand.
