VOLUME Mapua Literary Festival : Lloyd Jones

Saturday 21st September 2019

The 2019 VOLUME MAPUA LITERARY FESTIVAL is a boutique literary festival featuring some of New Zealand’s best and most interesting writers. Organised by VOLUME, the 2018 New Zealand Bookshop of the Year, the festival continues the series of literary events held in Mapua to benefit the Mapua Community Library. All ticket sales benefit the library.

Lloyd Jones’s fable-like novel The Cage is a profound and unsettling look at how public inaction normalises and even encourages active mistreatment of refugees. How does society demonise those seen as ‘other’? Jones addresses urgent contemporary issues.

Lloyd Jones has been short-listed for the Booker Prize and has won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. The Cage was a finalist for the Acorn Prize for Fiction in the 2019 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
Lloyd will be in conversation with former cabinet minister and mayor Philip Woollaston.
