Beyond the Page Child & Youth Literary Festival
Together with Hutt City and Wellington City Libraries we are very proud to announce the inaugural Beyond the Page festival, taking place on:
8 – 23 June 2017
As Libraries diversify to anticipate community needs, we are excited to delve into the diverse and deepening world of story in all its forms and create a celebration of our communities.
As many already know, Libraries are more than just books and printing facilities. Beyond the Page is an opportunity for youth and children to experience the ‘other’ (fizzing, creative, energetic, entrepreneurial, tech-driven, adventurous) side of Libraries and we will be building on the great work that is already happening around the region. Connect with your community and create your own story, beyond the page.
We have worked with local and national authors, illustrators and story makers to provide a rich and interesting programme of events and welcome the chance to highlight the brilliant creative work happening right here, right now.
