Today some of our library monitors were lucky enough to visit Whitcoulls Botany Downs with Ms Johnston and Mrs de Haast.
The reason for our trip was to see the magnificent Margaret Mahy, hear her retell 'The Word Witch' (without looking at a book) and get some of our new Margaret Mahy library books autographed by her. Margaret Mahy talked about her book 'Kaitangata Twitch' which has just been released on DVD and Ms Johnston has bought it for our library!
Some of the monitors also got personal autographs and we were amazed by her intricate, old style handwriting. We feel very lucky to have talk to Margaret Mahy as she doesn't make visits very often anymore.
