Powhiri for Kelly Ana Morey

26 June 2014 - 7pm
Join Ngati Whatua, the Devonport Library Associates and the Michael King Writers’ Centre to welcome author Kelly Ana
Morey (Ngati Kuri) to Devonport, and to hear her speak.

Kelly Ana holds the Maori Writer’s Residency at the Michael King Writers’ Centre this year.
She has combined her love of writing with her love of horses in her latest novel about the
famous race horse Phar Lap. Her book explores why Phar Lap meant so much to people, why he
became a Depression-era hero and national icon, and the compulsion that drives people who love
horses. An award-winning author, Kelly Ana has written four novels, three social histories, a memoir,
short stories and poetry. 

When: 7pm powhiri, 7.45 – 8.15 pm drinks and nibbles, 8.15 – 9 pm author talk.
