I have great admiration for mark Somerset, author of Cork on the Ocean - I've written about the book before.
During the festival he's reading Cork and the follow up Cork and the Bottle. Both are beautiful stories. My favourite is the first.
Here's the message from Mark:
SPIEGELTENT STORYTIME - AOTEA SQUARE, 15TH MARCH
As part of the Auckland Festival I will be reading both Cork on the Ocean and Cork and the Bottle in the Spiegeltent, Aotea Square this Sunday 15th March. Come on down for a 10am start - The Spiegeltent is an amazing venue and best of all it's free!

A LITTLE CORKER
Finally, as a friend of Cork, I thought you might like to know that Rowan and I are now parents to a baby boy. Linden Sommerset was born at home on 20th Feb - weighing in at 9lb 4 ounces! He's sure to be an inspiration as we work on the final book in Cork's trilogy. Now, if only I could find the time to write!
Ride the wave!
Might see you there.
