 Morrin Rout reports from Christchurch:

I was honoured to launch Jane Higgin's new book, The Bridge last Saturday at the Addington Coffee Co-op to a large and very enthusiastic group of family, friends, writers and fellow graduates and current students of the Hagley Writers' Institute. Jane's book won the prestigious Text Prize for an unpublished YA or children's manuscript and has already garnered fulsome praise from reviewers. 

There was an excellent interview with Jane in a recent Sunday Star Times -
 - she's a new writer to watch!

Congratulations to Jane on her successful launch--I would have loved to have been there to 'awhi' her, but will content myself with being there in spirit.:)
