The Women’s Bookshop celebrated its 21st Birthday with a party in their Ponsonby, Auckland shop to announce the winners of the Fifty-Fifty Women survey – the top 50 women writers of the last 50 years, voted by thousand of NZ readers nationwide.
Customers, friends, publishers & supporters crowded into the shop for wine, delicious food, & lots of discussion as the Top 50 were revealed. There was much hilarity as owner Carole Beu (pic above) gave away gift books and mugs to many of those present – for a variety of, sometimes dubious, reasons!
