Words to wonder
The 2018 Auckland Writers Festival will bring together 200 of the world’s leading writers and thinkers to celebrate the beauty of words and challenge people’s perceptions
This year’s festival is expected to attract upwards of 28,000
curious souls and promises something for everyone, with
an array of diverse events ranging from showcases of
poetry through to political debates, giving those in attendance
the opportunity to broaden their literary and literal horizons.
As the Platinum sponsor, Heartland Bank is proud to
support an event that allows people to engage in substantive
conversations about the world around them while helping to
keep ink and parchment alive in a digital world.
“Heartland is proud to support an event that caters for
a diverse range of cultures, interests and age groups,” says
Heartland Bank CEO Jeff Greenslade. “Through the world of
reading, the Festival connects us with new ideas and reminds us
that there’s still value in reading more than the 140 characters so
many of us have become accustomed to.”
The 2018 Auckland Writers Festival runs from 15-20 May.
Ticket details and the full festival programme will be announced
on 14 March. To keep up to date with the latest announcements,
