Good morning!

A Long Trail Rolling has made the New Zealand Book Council Summer Reads List!  aotearoareads-logo

Booksellers NZ discusses the program here!   They’re keen to inspire interest in home-grown talent!

A cast of New Zealand writers have selected their top picks from the Aotearoa-grown bookshelves to help guide kiwis in their Summer reading goals.

Aotearoa Summer Reads launches with Fairfax Media on Sunday 11 December with not-your-average-housewife and author Gilda Kirkpatrick talking us through her book picks via video on Stuff.co.nz, and with the first reveal of the extended reading list in the Sunday Star Times.

Writers Catherine Chidgey, Carl Nixon, Albert Wendt, Kelly Ana Morey, Jenny Pattrick and Leeanna Morgan have between them orchestrated a stellar list of more than twenty books to inspire our reading choices for the next few months.

It was announced on Stuff online news here

Fairfax Media has picked it up, so the announcement was in the Sunday Star TImes this past weekend, and will be out everywhere!

Pretty exciting stuff!


Take care, and have a safe and lovely holiday season! 🙂
