Joe Bennett in convo – Thursday 24 September

Cover of Alive and kickingJoe Bennett has written his first novel - King Rich. And you can hear him talk all about it this Thursday 24 September. There was a great article by Eleanor Black in The Press on Saturday: Christchurch a broken backdrop for Joe Bennett's first novel - and anyone who read this will be uber-keen to read King Rich:

Joe Bennett heard a story at a pub – where else – that he couldn't resist. A vagrant had made himself at home in the Grand Chancellor Hotel, the 26-storey leaning tower of luxury that was a leading symbol of the city's ruin until finally demolished by diggers.

You can also get the word from the horses's mouth (it's at the Blossom Lady Lounge at Addington Raceway) at a WORD Christchurch evening with Joe Bennett, Thursday 24 September, 7.30pm. Book now!
