What are you looking forward to doing in Christchurch?

Visiting the art gallery again. My art collection started with postcards from the gift shop.

What do you think about libraries?

Libraries are a bastion against ignorance and a gateway to learning, inspiration and joy. They’re the most powerful places on earth.

What would be your desert island book?

Roget’s Thesaurus, because I can create infinite stories from its contents.

Share a surprising fact about yourself.

I can recite several AA Milne poems, including The Knight Whose Armour Didn’t Squeak.
