Hugh Brown, visiting author
On 19th June our students had the opportunity to meet Hugh Brown, one of the NZ Post Book Award authors. He read from his book, Reach, and shared with us his writing habits and inspirations. This was also a great chance for our students to ask questions. Many were interested in how long it took to write a book – Hugh took only a few months to write the first draft of Reach but it then took 4 years of re-writing and editing before it appeared in print! A big thank you to Hugh Brown for sharing with our students and to Tracey-Lea and Pam from Kapiti Coast District Libraries for organising the visit. 

Book Spine Poetry - Some of our students have been ‘creating poetry’ in the library using book titles.
