NZ Festival series: Ian Wedde’s Reading Life (and Bill and Catherine’s)





This terrific series edited by Guy Somerset also includes Bill Manhire and Catherine Chidgey.

To celebrate Ian Wedde’s Selected Poems, we are invited to share a smidgeon of Ian’s reading life:

‘The first book to capture my imagination was … A toss up between May Gibbs’ Snugglepot and Cuddlepie (I was scared of the Banksia Men) and Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Books (I was Mowgli!).’

Sadly this was Guy’s last edition, but he left a terrific Glastonbury link as an adieu.
