June 11 2008

Penelope Todd has had a busy time of late. She has recently released Digging for Spain. This book is part travel memoir, part autobiography and about journeys, both physical – relating her experiences on a fellowship to Can Serrat in Spain, and personal – in life and writing. We’ll talk about her experiences, and also about her writing of young adult fiction. The third book in her Watermark trilogy, Zillah was a finalist in this year’s New Zealand Post Book Awards.

Emma Neale has also had a productive year, with the release of her collection of poetry Spark, and also of an anthology of New Zealand Poetry she has edited titled Swings + Roundabouts. We’ll chat about her work, and also the challenges faced by an editor in selecting works for an anthology representing so many people’s writing.

It would be interesting to hear the views of my country are there in the antipodes. I hope we will not let us very badly.
Incidentally Can Serrat has Catalan name that is where I live.
