I review titles that catch my eye, interview interesting authors, chefs, tea merchants, cider makers, tequila experts – you name it. There’a an archive of these newspaper pieces which you’ll find by clicking here.
Authors are staging a read-in this Friday March 25 in libraries all over the Auckland region to help raise funds for the Canterbury Appeal.
