Cover of The New Zealand Project by Max Harris.You are invited to hear author of The New Zealand Project, Max Harris speak as part of the Bridget Williams Books (BWB) WInter Series.

This event will feature Max in conversation with Sam Johnson, Sylvia Nissen and Lindsey MacDonald. All are welcome.

Max will discuss politics in New Zealand today and why it needs impatience and imagination – and the values of care, community, and creativity.

Date and Time: Wednesday 24th May 2017, from 7pm
Location: Gisbon Centre at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School (59 Hewitts Road, Merivale)

Max Harris’s book "The New Zealand Project: puts forward - from the perspective of a young New Zealander - a vision for deepening our political discussion, starting conversations, and confronting the challenges ahead.

By any measure, New Zealand must confront monumental challenges in the years ahead. The scale of issues like climate change, the future of work in an age of automation, and mass imprisonment often seem at odds with New Zealand’s constrained political actions and engagement.

"The New Zealand Project" has sparked debate throughout the country since its release in mid April, including in the major media outlets such as the NZ Herald, Dominion Post, The Press, Otago Daily Times, TVNZ, RNZ, and the NZ Listener.
