HOW TO BE A WRITER: STEVE HELY

HOW TO BE A WRITER: STEVE HELY

Saturday 27 August 2016, 3:30pm—4:30pm

Steve Hely is probably best known to New Zealanders for his work on the small screen: The Office, American Dad and 30 Rock, among others. But his first novel, How I Became a Famous Novelist, won the Thurber Prize for American Humor, and his latest project is part travel book, part pop history and part comic memoir. The Wonder Trail, which follows his journey through Central and South America, has been described as 'casually insightful, refreshingly honest, and, most of all, amazingly funny'.
