Wellington Authors Launch CD

23 November 2009

For the first time, a group of local authors have come together to record a collection of children's stories on CD - with a distinct Wellington flavour.

The brainchild of Wellington City libraries staff, Whispers in the Wind is aimed at 5 - 12 year-olds and will be available for sale from this Friday at an introductory price of $15. It can also be borrowed through our libraries.

The CD features 10 Wellington children's authors - Joy Cowley, Janice Marriott, Fleur Beale, Rachel Hayward, Barbara Else, Barbara Murison, Kevin Boon, Philippa Werry, Denis Wright and Ali Middleton, and most have been recorded for the first time.

The Whispers in the Wind CD - available just in time for Christmas - follows the successful launch of a Baby Rock & Rhyme CD last year.
