Explaining the Relentless Rise of Crime Fiction
Here in NZ, crime writers like Paul Cleave largely outsell their literary rivals, but what drives the unstoppable popularity of crime fiction? Why do we enjoy reading about things we’d hate to experience? Bestselling, award-winning crime writers Professors Val McDermid and Liam McIlvanney grapple with these questions.
What is MindJam?
Tickle your brain as we tackle the big issues in a series of informal conversations, stitched together by some of New Zealand’s leading thinkers, over a coﬀee and cake or wine and tapas.
MindJam sessions are guided by guest experts, but it’s our questions, thoughts and discussions that make MindJam. Seats are free but limited, so please get your spot early, order your refreshments and be ready to join in. Friday night’s launch includes complementary tapas.
Yonder, 14 Church Street, October 25 – 27, 2019. Eventbrite registration encouraged, so we have an idea on numbers, but it is first in, first served for seats. Updates will be posted on our Facebook page
