Hosted at Westwick, a unique straw house, Airini Beautrais will be talking to Alexa Cook about her extraordinary short stories – all of which pack an emotional punch. Bug Week is an entertaining book traversing mood and setting, time and place in the accomplished hands of an inspired and dedicated writer.
Airini Beautrais is a poet, fiction writer, essayist and teacher. Her work has appeared in a range of journals and anthologies in Aotearoa and elsewhere. She is the author of four collections of poetry, and a collection of short fiction, Bug Week, which won the Jann Medlicott Acorn Prize for Fiction at the Ockham NZ Book Awards in 2021. She lives in Whanganui with her two sons and two cats.
Alexa is a Senior Newshub Reporter based in Wellington. (However she is originally a local CHB girl from Ashley Clinton!) Alexa is an international multi-award winning journalist and started with Newshub in 2020 after moving back to New Zealand from the UK, where she was a broadcast journalist for BBC News.
