Friday 14 May 2021

Have you read Bug Week by Airini Beautrais?  If you haven't, add it to your reading list immediately! Bug Week won the premier award at the 2021 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards - the $57,000 Jann Medlicott Acorn Prize for fiction, the first short story collection to win this award in more than a decade.

Another excellent book to add to your reading list is Vincent O’Sullivan's The Dark is Light Enough: Ralph Hotere a Biographical Portrait, which won the General Non-Fiction Award.

Check out the other 2021 Ockham New Zealand Book Award winners, and maybe they just might make it to your reading list too.
