This Monday marks the beginning of the NZ Post Book Awards “festival” which culminates in the awards ceremony on the 20th. So what’s going on in the festival then? If you scroll right to the very bottom of this page you’ll see the events on in Wellington – they’re mostly writing and illustrating workshops with such writers and illustrators as Fleur Beale, Ali Teo and Fifi Colston.
In case you’re interested in finding out more about the finalists in the Young Adult fiction category, the good people at Create Readers have a couple of reviews: Juno of Taris by Fleur Beale (review here) and Chronicle of Stone Book 1, Scorched Bone by Vince Ford (here’s the review). We’ll keep you posted with more news as it comes to hand.
