SESSION TWO:

Esther Glen medal winner Weng Wai Chan (Lizard’s Tale), cartoonist Toby Morris (Te Tiriti O Waitangi) and award-winning writer Tania Roxborogh (Charlie Tangaroa and the Creature from the Sea).

*Each session is followed by an optional book signing session where children (and teachers!) get the chance to meet the authors. Books will also be available for sale from UBS.
