Independent Book Festival
The North Shore Events Centre housed the second Independent Book Festival in Auckland for independent authors and publishers over the past weekend.
October 3rd and 4th proved to be very busy days for people involved in every step of the book making process – from authors to illustrators to graphic artists and publishers.
Writers’ organisations were also present. For example, the Auckland Branch of the NZSA (New Zealand Society of Authors), the Auckland Chapter of the RWNZ (Romance Writers New Zealand), and the Mairangi Bay Writers were strongly represented.
The Indie Festival provided an excellent opportunity for the reading public to explore the talents of established to newbee Kiwi authors in every genre.
