A Round Up of 2016
Ladies' Litera-Tea was a great success - above is our line-up of wonderful women writers L to R: Kerrin Sharpe, Yael Shochat, Marilyn Jessen, Emma Neale, Carole Beu, Catherine Chidgey, Lindsey Dawson, Ashleigh Young, Paula Green, Helene Wong, Gina Cole, and Urzila Carlson (not pictured Janice Marriott).
We have been honoured to host some amazing authors and wonderful books.
From Top L to R: Simonne Butler with Louise Nicholas; Launch of Double-Edge Sword; Laurence Fearnley signing A Quiet Spectacular; Julie Helean with We the Ones; Helen McNeil launching A Striking Truth; Nadia Hashimi with A House without Windows; Patricia Kay (from the Women's Bookshop) & Elizabeth Hay with His Whole Life; Lindsey Dawson with Scarlet & Magenta; Matt Vickers with Lecretia's Choice.
We had a riotous night with several of the contributing chefs to Cooking 4 Change. The publishers are donating the proceeds to four NZ charities whilst The Women's Bookshop gave $5 from the sale of each book to the City Mission (one of the four charities).
