The Tai Tokerau Literacy Association, in partnership with the NZ Book Council brought Donovan Bixley to Whangarei & Kerikeri to work with our best and aspiring authors and illustrators from Year four to eight.

Whangarei Primary School and Riverview Primary hosted Donovan Bixley and groups of students from schools around Northland made the most of this opportunity to work with Donovan for one-hour blocks. Donovan is relaxed and works with children in a creative, relaxed and hands-on workshop.

Donovan Bixley also made a brief appearance at the Whangarei Public Library. Seventy children and adults attended this session.

It was a privilege and pleasure to see Donovan Bixley motivating and empowering our children as budding authors and illustrators.
