One of the world’s most lauded and beloved writers, Ann Patchett sits down with friend and fellow novelist Meg Mason (Sorrow and Bliss).

With nine novels and four works of non-fiction to her name, countless appearances in New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller lists, a PEN/Faulkner Award and 130,000 people eagerly following her independent bookstore Parnassus Books’ Instagram for regular reading recommendations, it’s no wonder Patchett has been listed as one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.

Beloved among Aotearoa New Zealand’s readers – and an all-round good force in the world of books and reading – don’t miss Patchett in this career- spanning conversation about her rich writing life and newest novel, the acclaimed Tom Lake.
