Literary Witches

12pm Fri 15 October

At Alert Level 2, this event has limited capacity to ensure correct hygiene measures and social distancing. If there is a shift in Alert Levels, we will notify all bookings.

Of Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers, written by Taisia Kitaiskaia and illustrated by Katy Horan, author Jia Tolentino writes: “Literary Witches is itself an act of witchcraft, a spellbook to wake the living and the dead … Transformative, revivifying, gorgeous, unsettling, and intensely moving, this book is a volume of poetry, miniature encyclopedia, and twenty-first-century illuminated manuscript all at once.” 
Thanks to the magic of the internet, we bring the Literary Witches creators to Verb Readers & Writers Festival to talk with Wellington-based artist Catherine Bagnall and writer Jane Sayle (On We Go) about collaboration, inspiration and the generative possibilities of imagination, women and nature. Hosted by Megan Whelan. 

‘A magical and unique reading experience.’ — Paula Green on On We Go
