A message from Libby Limbrick, chair of the Storylines Trust.
The Storylines Festival Family Days are magical days where writers, illustrators and storytellers come together to meet children and their families and share the ins, outs and upside-downs of New Zealand stories.
The Storylines Festival Family Days are nearly upon us and we have just three days left to reach our crowd-funding target of $10,000 – we are 58% there, we just need a few more generous individuals to help us out.
The Family Days are and always have been free for children and their families. There are now six of them round the country and every year thousands and thousands of New Zealand children get to meet the writers, illustrators and storytellers who are telling our stories right here and now, inspiring them to become eager and engaged readers and writers. Here is the line-up for this year.
This year, Storylines is running a crowd-funding campaign to help cover the costs of the Family Days and we’d be over the goodnight moon if you’d join us by making a small donation to the cause.
Please help Storylines, every donation, however big or small, helps hugely.
