Celebrate Margaret Mahy at your library

23 July marks the first anniversary of Margaret Mahy’s passing. Margaret was a “word witch”, a master of children’s literature and also a former Christchurch Children’s Librarian.

To celebrate Margaret’s life we are presenting storytime sessions at various libraries throughout KidsFest. “Margaret Mahy Mayhem and more!” will be a colourful, energetic tribute to one of New Zealands most highly acclaimed and loved children’s author – and to our former colleague.
