Christchurch comes to Auckland for the Writers Festival

Auckland Writers Festival is up and running as I write. I won't get there until Saturday. I'll even miss the launch party tomorrow. I'm spending the next two days in Christchurch and Greymouth running web 2.0 courses for staff with the West Coast and Canterbury libraries.

APN - Aotearoa Peoples Network
They are part of the first wave of the Aotearoa Peoples Network. We, Paul Sutherland and I, also have sessions in New Plymouth this coming Monday and Masterton the following Saturday. I am really looking forward to it. 

There is also a You Tube video. I'm embedding it at the end. I love this project and am so up for being part of it for a couple of days.

Christchurch Library comes to the Jaffa land
Meanwhile , still in library land the Christchurch City Library team is now in Auckland to cover the Writers Festival. I reckon they are going to be the media stars of the event.

The word from Andy James, the online editor is his team is already on the case, here. Their Festival section on their big site is here On view on the site is a copy of their special weekly website edition, dedicated this week to the Festival , here.

They are also planning for audio, including some from their interviews with the talent, including, Simon Montefiore, Thomas Kohnstamm, Junot Diaz, Karlo Mila, Mo Hayder, Sarah Hall, Tessa Duder, John Burnside, and more to come.

Andy is hoping his team will give the most comprehensive coverage of the Festival outside the Festival site itself.

Library Best Practice

Now I like that - ambition - reach - and a total commitment to the book. Sounds like best library practice to me. Would love to hear if others, both locally or offshore had managed anything as good!

And, nope, I didn't forget - here is that You Tube video. Have a look - it has teenagers saying nice things about libraries! Where will it end.
