I know Christmas is still a way off yet but with the postie regularly stopping at our mailbox, filling it up with entries for our poetry competition, it’s every bit as exciting!
For entry details click on the Poetry Competition heading just below the fern on the home page.
And in today’s post a special treat – a copy of the summer braille edition of Poems in the Waiting Room. Lyvie from the RNZFB is sending copies to their offices in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Invercargill, Hamilton and Napier. RNZFB members are welcome to pick up these poetry booklets and take them home to keep at no cost. Members who don’t live in any of the above areas are welcome to contact the RNZFB National Office and request a copy in either contracted or uncontracted braille. Copies are also going to Homai Special Formats Library in Manuwera and the Wellington office of Association of Blind Citizens.
A huge thanks to Creative New Zealand for their generous funding grant which has allowed the summer braille edition to be transcribed, printed and bound.
OK back to writing your Christmas shopping lists!!
