Join us to hear 2014 Victoria University/Creative New Zealand Writer in Residence Hinemoana Baker in conversation with Chris Price. With a new book of poems, waha | mouth, freshly released in July, Baker is currently working on a book about her experiences of involuntary childlessness and her father’s traumatic childhood in a Nelson orphanage. She will discuss how retelling her father’s story is a way to acknowledge the painful past, and to move on with grace.

From mid-July to October each year, Victoria University’s International Institute of Modern Letters (IIML) runs a series of events highlighting writers active in and around Wellington, as well as guests from overseas.
