WORD Christchurch Festival 2016 Margaret Mahy Memorial Lecture 2016

“The more our stories [are] told, the more our friends and family and neighbours [see] who we are, the more we [are] able to dismantle prejudices and get to the truth… stories do matter, because empathy is everything.” David Levithan

We are thrilled to welcome best-selling Young Adult author David Levithan to present the second biennial Margaret Mahy Memorial Lecture, which celebrates her extraordinary imagination. David’s many novels include Every Day, Two Boys Kissing, Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green), and his latest, You Know Me Well (with Nina LaCour), and he is well qualified to speak on diversity in literature.
