What (or who) are you most looking forward to at WORD Christchurch?

 I am so looking forward to listening to Jackie French and all her ideas for making historical events come to life.

What do you think about libraries?

 Libraries well I just love them!. I work in one, visit others all the time and just love all the wonderful things they have to offer. Even when I lived overseas I joined a local library straight away.

Share a surprising fact about yourself.

I once almost fell off the side of a very large cliff down to a lake of frozen ice below. A friend grabbed my hand as I hung over the edge and kicked my way back up. Scary!
