Oliver Jeffers NZ visit
Yesterday I posted a Q&A with Oliver Jeffers from the Sydney Morning Herald. A few weeks ago the Listener ran a great article by Guy Sommerset about Oliver Jeffers, whom he was lucky enough to interview a few weeks earlier. The interview is now available to view on the Listener website: http://www.listener.co.nz/culture/books/interview-childrens-author-oliver-jeffers/
Oliver will be partaking in his first NZ author tour in May, visiting Wellington and Auckland. Oliver will be doing an ‘in conversation’ event in Wellington on Tuesday 8 May. Tickets are almost sold out, but a few are still available: https://secure.ticketdesq.com/book/index.cfm?fuseaction=main&TicketDesqID=571&OrgID=7993
He will also partake in the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival. As well as partaking in the Schools Programme, Oliver is also included in the New Zealand Listener Gala Night. On Saturday 12 May he will be doing an event for families. Oliver will draw live onstage, supported by storyteller and comic strip artist Dylan Horrocks, speak about his books and answer questions from the audience. Tickets are still available for this event and it is sure to be hit with the kids!
