1. See the new photography exhibition 'Authors' opening Saturday at Waitohi Community Hub
More than 70 images of local and overseas novelists, poets, non-fiction writers, including Margaret Atwood (pictured above), will be on display from this Saturday.
This exhibit is the work of Photographer Alan Knowles who was a regular attendee at events hosted by the New Zealand Book Council, now ReadNZ Te Pou Muramura, in the 1990s. Alan offered to make a series of pro bono portraits for the Council’s archives and to pay homage to the administrators and booksellers responsible for touring and promoting the authors’ work.
This exhibition is presented thanks to the Photography Aotearoa Charitable Trust.
2. Shsshhhhhh, it’s the silent book club
