Why bother with mem­oir?

Te Awamutu Courier - - Front Page -

Poet and mem­oir writer Kate Camp will give this year's Frank Sarge­son Memorial lec­ture at the Univer­sity of Waikato.

Kate start­ing writ­ing mem­oir when she was in France on the Kather­ine Mansfield Men­ton Fel­low­ship in 2017.

She found it raised lots of ques­tions about fact and fic­tion, ethics and ego, what one hides and what one chooses to re­veal.

Her lec­ture fol­lows on from that ask­ing why bother with mem­oir at all?

The lec­ture is at Univer­sity of Waikato, S.1.04 - S Block on Mon­day, Septem­ber 10 at 5.30pm.
