We are planning a literary event for early Sept (4th and 5th) here in Upper Hutt. (Pending funding at this stage).
What we want, are expressions of interest from local authors, publishers, and printers who would like to be involved. Local meaning Upper Hutt and the greater Wellington Region.  Find out more on our event page.

It will be great to see some familiar faces again, and some new. Also please to see the Wellington Underground Bookstore team will be there.
