Tuatara Open Late: Book Club Monster Mash

4 March 2021


Due to COVID-19 Alert Level 2 restrictions, Tuatara Open Late on Thursday 4 March will have restricted capacity and booking is required. There are two session times available from 6 to 8pm (Talk and Book Club) and 8 to 9pm (Monadic Device), and you can choose to book for both sessions (separately).

City Gallery remains open under Covid-19 Alert Level 2. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is very important to us so we continue to follow Ministry of Health advice and guidelines around physical distancing, hygiene, visitor numbers and contact tracing. All visitors are asked to stay home if they are feeling unwell, to maintain physical distancing while in City Gallery and are required to complete contract tracing upon entering via the NZ COVID Tracer app or manually. Learn more.

Pip Adam and the City Gallery Book Club return with a reading list inspired by Marianna Simnett: CREATURE, monsters and modern demented fairytales. Panellists Sam Duckor-Jones, Erin Harrington, and Rebecca Hawkes will discuss:

  • This Is not a Pipe by Tara Black
  • This Young Monster by Charlie Fox
  • Under the Skin (film) by Jonathon Glazer

Also, in a moment of total meta-ness, illustrator and author of This Is not a Pipe, Tara Black, will be in the audience illustrating the session.

This session will also be live streamed on City Gallery Wellington's Facebook page.
