The University of Auckland Festival Forum - The Great Divide

The University of Auckland is delighted to again support the Auckland Writers Festival in 2017.

Alumni and friends of the University are invited to attend the University of Auckland Festival Forum on Wednesday 17 May, 8-9.30pm, ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre.

2016 saw Britons vote to leave the European Union and Americans elect Donald Trump as president, leaving many dumbstruck and locked in an us-and-them tussle across politics, economics, race, gender and geographies.


Join Pulitzer-Prizewinning journalist Susan Faludi (Backlash and Stiffed), Australian journalist Stan Grant (Talking To My Country), UK writer John Lanchester (Capital), and University of Auckland alum and Senior lecturer in Creative Writing, Dr Paula Morris (On Coming Home) as they discuss yawning divides and propose possible bridges. Convened by University of Auckland alum, Andrew Johnston
