What's Santa got up his sleeves?

by Elizabeth Heritage

It’s late October, which means that preparation for the Christmas rush is well underway. This week, The Read goes for a rummage through Santa’s sack, looking for those books that might be in danger of going undiscovered. We talk to writers, booksellers and publishers from across Aotearoa to discover hidden gems due out this Christmas.
Bronwyn Wylie-Gibb from UBS Otago, Hera Lindsey Bird from Unity Books Wellington, Matthew Simpson from Harpercollins NZ, Kirsten McDougall from VUP, Adrienne Jansen from Escalator Press, Mary McCallum from Makaro Press, Helen Rickerby from Seraph Press, Carrie Welch from Penguin Random House, Mary Varnham from Awa Press, Milena Stoysavljevic of Landing Press, and Gemma Finlay from Hachette NZ have all put forward their suggestions for Christmas must-sells.
