Same Same But Different Writers Festival: Secret Lives


event Details

Secret Lives looks at the problems of biography in relation to New Zealand artists and writers with a possible LGBTQI identity.

Three panellists choose a particular New Zealand artist or writer and talk about life at a time of subterfuge and prejudice: how to be real to yourself and speak your truth – yet survive financially. Esteemed Auckland Art Gallery curator Ron Brownson, maverick modernist and prize-winning author Douglas Lloyd Jenkins are joined by funny and deeply knowledgeable biographer Joanne Drayton, whose latest book, Hudson & Halls: The Food of Love, has been a huge success. Chaired by that man-about-town, Jeremy Hansen.
