Titahi Bay storyteller Holly Gooch is releasing her first book of short stories at a launch party on Thursday 22 November 5.30-6.30pm at Pataka. The book ‘Hometime’ is a collection of five stories for 9-12 year olds and is about the kinds of things kids this age get up to when they’re mucking around home – especially when there is little parental supervision! It has been illustrated by Plimmerton artist Alice Moore. The party will be an hour of food, music and activities for kids – including a treasure hunt and a pancake tossing competition. There will be several chances to win a copy of the book or it can be purchased for $12 a copy, or two for $20. Cash only.
