Storyline Festival

Storylines Festival is this Thursday and both Extension groups will be attending. We are going to listen to four interesting authors and what books they wrote. Its Juliette Mclver, Catherine Mayo, Jill MacGregor and Paula Green and it will be held at Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau.

Juliette Mclver is a young lady that would always enjoy writing, but had never thought that she'd become one. She was hoping to write children's books at any age and then soon decided to be a writer. Juliette was raised in Wellington and went to Victoria Uni.

Cath Mayo was born Catholic maternity hospital in Auckland in the same room as another girl named Penelope. Her mum was a presbyterian but they named her Catherine because of the hospital she was raised in. She is also a one that writes chapter books.

Jill MacGregor was born in Dunedin and now lives in Kapiti coast. Jill writes pacific island nation stories for children. She writes short stories and they are picture books. Her new series of books is to encourage the young lives of little ones to understand there daily life in all islands.

Paula Green  is based in west Auckland and writes short stories but its chapter books. She is now in a hotel ready to start her storyline tour and yet she is enjoying it. She is also staying with the other three authors.

The one I am looking forward to see is Cath Mayo and would love to hear one of her books. I read a little bit of hers and found it very interesting.
