Marlborough Book Festival: Whitehaven Room
Susan Paris and Kate De Goldi are changing the landscape for young readers in New Zealand, as they curate fresh writing and illustration from some of New Zealand's top talent. The pair have followed on from the success of 'Annual' and 'Annual 2' with 'Skinny Dip', an anthology of 36 school-inspired poems from 24 New Zealand poets, to reflect everyday experiences of Kiwi kids, from nits and crushes to rainy-day lunchtimes, through a range of poetic forms.
Learn what inspires these champions of young readers, and how they push boundaries to create bespoke books for a new generation. A session for teachers, writers, artists, parents, grandparents and poetry lovers.
The 2022 Marlborough Book Festival runs from 6.30pm Thursday 7 July through to 5pm Sunday 10 July with a range of author sessions on across at the weekend at the ASB Theatre, Blenheim and Spy Valley Wines. More info at the Marlborough Book Festival website.
