This week sees the close of the fabulous Rocky Outcrop Writers Tour. If you haven't been along to one of the events then you have two last chances. This Wednesday at the War Memorial Library in Lower Hutt. and Saturday at Paekakariki. I'll be a guest at the Paekakariki event along with Lynn Jenner and Tina Makereti. The chairperson is Lawrence Patchett. Here is an interview they did with all the writers, on the blog for the tour – you can read a bit about the Rocky Outcroppers here on their about page.
Going by their Facebook page it has been a wonderful journey.
Each writer will read some of their work and there will be a conversation about writing, as well. To quote Helen Lehndorf 'They are exciting and dynamic writers, who have all written remarkable first books'.
The event is FREE – but perhaps bring some cash along to buy a book or two - the best way to support artists!
The following day from 4-6pm is Poets to the People in Raumati at Valhalla Cafe & Restaurant, 31 Poplar Ave, Raumati South. With wonderful guest poets Tim Upperton, and my dear friend, Helen Lehndorf. Why not come out for the whole weekend? What a wonderful way to celebrate NZ Book Month!
