This is a conversation with Claire Mabey and Andrew Laking (aka Pirate & Queen), they are event organisers, and the co-creators/directors of Wellington’s coolest little literary festival, Litcrawl.
We talk about their backgrounds (Claire’s a book-nerd and has worked in publishing, as a book-reviewer and with other literary festivals, Andrew’s a musician and has toured and promoted musical acts).
We also talked through Litcrawl 2017’s programme – some great events, innovative structuring and this year it’s bigger and better than ever.
One of the highlights will be a panel discussion around Bob Dylan’s life and works. And I’m proud to be the compere of that session.
I hope you enjoy this conversation. And please check out Litcrawl and get along this year (November 10-12) if you can.
