Back to programme


The Read Aloud Schools Day is back for another year! Each festival, we bring six exciting children’s writers to the stage, free for all primary and intermediate schools in Canterbury. This year we are stoked to welcome Gavin Bishop (Wild Aotearoa, Ātua), Maysoon Salama (Aya and the Butterfly), Lily Emo (illustrator for Margaret Mahy’s The Boy Who Made Things Up), Graci Kim (The Last Fallen Star), Joanna Grochowicz (Shackleton’s Endurance) and Maria Gill (Remarkable Animal Stories).

Teachers, contact for session details and to secure a spot for your school group.

Parents, ask your kids’ teachers to book a spot!
