January 12th 2007
I'll be talking with Otago University Special Collections Librarian Donald Kerr about his recently released books. The Smell of Powder is a history of duelling in New Zealand, and yes, it did happen here! Amassing Treasures for all times: Sir George Grey, Colonial Bookman and Collector, tells of another side to Sir George Grey - the book collector.
Robyn Belton's children's book illustrations particularly those of our family favourite Greedy Cat will be familiar to many of you. Robyn was the 2006 recipient of the Margaret Mahy Medal for children's literature. I'll be talking to her about life as an illustrator and her most recent books, Greedy Cat and the Sneeze, and Marta and the Manger Straw.
