She regularly reviews books on 95bFM’s Breakfast, RNZ’s Nine to Noon and is a host on The Spinoff’s Papercuts podcast – ‘the podcast all about books’. Jenna is on the board of directors for Booksellers NZ and the New Zealand Book Awards Trust and will be joining us in February.

Drinks and supper will be provided. Koha appreciated.

We acknowledge the venue sponsorship of the Masters in Creative Writing at The Centre for Creative Writing, AUT. There is street parking handy as well as the Aotea Square car park. The venue is within easy walking distance for those using public transport.

Final Note: The Auckland Branch works to create meetings which are inclusive and welcoming. The meetings aim to be a great introduction to NZSA for new members as well as a place of community for all. For this reason the business part of the meeting is kept brief and finer points about the running of the branch are managed at committee level. No new business is added to the agenda on the night. All members are expected to act in a professional, appropriate manner.
