Little Landers Literature
7 May - 31 December 2018
Literature and rugby are forming an alliance to bring the joy of reading to Dunedin’s children.
Under the programme, Highlanders players would head to Pine Hill, Bathgate Park, Carisbrook, Brockville, Concord and Bradford schools to read to pupils, and share stories about the books theyloved to read.
Highlanders players and pupils will swap stories about their favourite books, articles, graphic novels or lyrics, and read to each other. The programme would run during term two this year, and could continue next year, with a new group of schools invited to sign up.
Local writer-illustrators Robyn Belton and Kathryn van Beek will also visit the schools to provide insights into the process of writing and illustrating.
