Kia ora dear booklovers,

I’m very sorry to say that given the COVID alert level two status, the misgivings some of our presenters had on traveling and the impact of the guidelines on social distancing, and people gathering, the Featherston Booktown Board of Trustees have made the difficult decision to cancel the last Words in Winter events for August due to be held in the Anzac Hall on this Saturday, 22 August.

We were so looking forward to hosting Shayne Carter, Richard Langston, Lynn Freeman and the four wonderful poets from Wellington: Sam Duckor-Jones, Tayi Tibble, Jordan Hamel and Helen Rickerby at Featherston Booktown this weekend!

We hope to reschedule the events soon, either in the late Summer or at the Featherston Booktown Karukatea Festival in May next year (6-9 May 2021).

I hope you won’t be too disappointed and we thank you again for your support and patience…
