The Bookman teams up again tonight with bookseller Carole Beu for another session of author interviews, book reviews and news.

Face TV is Sky Channel 83. If you don’t have Sky or miss the show then it will be linked here and here tomorrow morning. The show also screens on Thursday October 2nd at 12.30pm on Face TV.

This week Graham Beattie is talking to crime fiction author Paul Thomas while Carole chats to poet/author Paula Green.

On the hunt for children and classes to interview authors in A Treasury of NZ Poetry for Children

You might know just the child or class for this job!

To celebrate the arrival of A Treasury of NZ Poetry for Children in October (Random House), my own poems in The Letterbox Cat in August (Scholastic) and NZ Poetry Box, I am doing masses of things.

A Hot Spot Poetry Tour of NZ for about a month is the main act.

But I am also looking for children and classes to devise an interview for and write a short bio of an author in the Treasury. I will give help where needed!

I am assigning names to children and classes who get in touch. So some are already taken!

I then send the questions to the author.

I will post interviews in October.

I will give a copy of The Treasury to my favourite interview by a child and my favourite by a class.
