Award-winning children’s writers and illustrators tour the Auckland region between Monday 19 August and Friday 23 August in the third of six legs of the 2019 Storylines National Festival Story Tour, sharing their love of reading and books with several thousand pupils at more than 50 schools, libraries, community centres – and at a special event at Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau.
Heading for schools, early childhood centres and community venues round Auckland are award-winning writer/illustrators David Elliot and Donovan Bixley and writer/designer Janet Hunt, along with up-and-coming YA writer Lani Wendt Young.
All four also appear at a public family event, ‘Storylines Tales on Tour’ on Wednesday 21 August at 6pm at the Leys Institute, Ponsonby.
