Mysterious Traveller 
by Mal Peet and Elspeth Graham
Many of you will know that renowned author Mal Peet is in Wellington teaching at IIML. Mal and Elspeth are from over the ditch and don’t know too many people here yet, so this is your chance to welcome them and celebrate the launch of their picture book. As John McIntyre says, “Bring your friends ... we need to make this a big Wellington event.”

Saturday April 13, 3:00pm
A Winter’s Day by Melinda Szymanik
Melinda is thrilled to be invited to come down to Wellington and launch her new book. Come along and be part of the welcome and join us for dinner afterwards. Here is a snippet from Barbara Murison’s review: “This book, which is based on the experiences of Melinda's father and his family, is hard to put down and even harder to forget.”
