Writers Festival 15 - 20 May 2018

2018 Open Book

The Festival brings the world to Auckland every May.

This year we stage 207 public events, gathering together 230 of the world’s best writers and thinkers with over 28,000 Festival goers and up to 6,000 young people to celebrate the world of books and ideas.

For the past 18 years the Festival has enriched the culture of our city and established itself as a major Australasian festival, characterised not only by the calibre of our guest authors but also by the enthusiasm and engagement of our audience and the warmth and welcome provided by Auckland as our setting.
