Mystery in the Library – Auckland (Ōtāhuhu)

The Ngaio Marsh Awards, in association with Auckland Libraries, invite South Auckland booklovers to a free event featuring a diverse panel of four talented local crime writers.

Over the past century, crime writing has evolved from puzzle-like entertainment into modern novels delving deeply into people, places, and psychology. Still the world’s most popular form of storytelling, crime writing can take readers into all aspects of society, providing page-turning entertainment and memorable characters while also addressing real-life social issues.

2019 Ngaio Marsh Awards contenders Angus McLean, Kirsten McKenzie, Linda Coles, and Terry Carson talk about what inspired them to write tales, fictional and real, full of crime, and how they bring the world of their books to vivid life.

WHEN: Tuesday 7 May 2019
WHERE: Otahuhu Library, 28-30 Mason Ave, Otahuhu, Auckland
WHEN: 6.15 for a 6.30pm panel discussion

This is a free event.
