Press Release from NZ Book Council :

Every year Words on Wheels or WOW brings a multi-genre group of leading Kiwi writers to a different part of rural New Zealand, where they perform free-of-charge in local venues.

  In 2007, internationally acclaimed fantasy novelist, Elizabeth Knox;  bestselling historical novelist, Deborah Challinor; poet and playwright, Bernadette Hall; children’s writer, Vince Ford, and  performance poet, reviewer, and non-fiction writer, David Eggleton will be stopping in small towns from Te Awamutu to Papamoa to spread their words during a week-long tour.

  Book Council Director, Karen Ross, says Words on Wheels reaches many places that other art tours do not. ‘No town is too small to be WOWed. People love meeting and hearing writers in the flesh and we find communities are still buzzing long after WOW has departed. We’re delighted to provide this nourishment to the cultural life of many regions.’

  Running annually since 1991, WOW has travelled the length of the country, moving through towns from the deep South to the far North, on a six-year cycle. Between Monday 26 February and Saturday 3 March, WOW 2007 will visit Te Awamutu, Te Kuiti, Taupo, Rotorua, Kawerau, Whakatane, Te Puke,Bethlehem, Papamoa, Matamata, Paeroa and Morrinsville.

  WOW is at Rotorua Public Library on Wednesday 28th February at 10.30am.  There is no need to book and autographed copies of books will be on sale.  A gold coin donation will go towards the Library’s building fund.
