The Ngaio Marsh Awards, in association with Waimakariri Libraries, invite booklovers to an event featuring four talented Canterbury authors.
Crime writing has evolved from the puzzle-like mysteries of Agatha Christie and Christchurch’s own Dame Ngaio Marsh to modern novels and non-fiction books delving deeply into people, places, and psychology. It has continued to be one of the world’s most popular form of storytelling.
2019 Ngaio Marsh Awards entrants Al Lester, Laura Melville and LM Hedrick will be joined by 2017 Ngaios longlistee Mark McGinn to discuss what drew them to a life of crime (writing), how they craft memorable characters and page-turning stories, and the impact of our New Zealand setting on their books and stories.
