Going West Books & Writers Festival is an annual literary event that takes place in West Auckland. From the 3rd to 19th of September 2015, West Auckland will again be transformed into a hotbed of literary discussion, debate, oration and performance. In celebration of Going West’s 20th anniversary, Te Uru is pleased to help present a number of associated events.
