Top Author Urges Porirua Teenagers to Read And Write Whatever They Want
Multi-award winning author Fleur Beale will be urging Porirua’s young adults to read and write whatever they want, during a free public event organised by Porirua Public Library.
Young and not so young adults are invited to attend the evening of conversation with Beale on September 18 at 5.30pm in Pataka’s Helen Smith meeting room.
“It’s the first time we’ve organised such an event for young adults and I am so excited that we will have an author of Fleur’s calibre to talk to them,” says Porirua Children’s Librarian Bee Trudgeon.
Beale is best known for her teenage classic I Am Not Esther and its new sequel I Am Rebecca.
She is also the author of the Juno of Taris trilogy and the adult non-fiction book Sins of the Father.
The evening is the first in a series of events on the theme of the Freedom to Read, which Porirua Library will revisit during the annual ‘banned books celebrations’ during September & October.
Porirua teenagers are invited to bring a friend to this free event, and join the conversation.
Drinks and nibbles will be served.
To book places please RSVP to btrudgeon@pcc.govt.nz
