Canadian-born New Zealand writer Eleanor Catton took readers and critics by storm last year with her novel, The Luminaries. Winner of both the Governor General’s Award and the Man Booker Prize, this 848-page romp through New Zealand’s gold rush era is powered by eccentric characters and interweaving plot lines.

Join Joanne Kelly, book club host extraordinaire, for a behind-the-scenes conversation with this accomplished young writer.
