Writers Week in Wellington – Robert Dessaix on Enid Blyton


Saturday night saw us gathering at the Dowse Art Museum to listen to that ‘naughty show pony’ Robert Dessaix, the Australian novelist, essayist and journalist, describe his lasting influences of a childhood reading the enchanting tales of Enid Blyton.

Robert’s flamboyant humour peppered his insightful commentary which left his audience much to ponder as he regaled us all with the themes of being transported on fun, daring adventures, winning over enemies, feasting on sugary treats and lashings of ginger beer, before returning home with Dick, Fanny and the gang.

Catch Robert if he comes to a town near you, you won’t be disappointed!
