Storylines Festival

It was just the start of Lunch, and the Year 7&8 Extension were up and ready to move. Where? I hear you asking, On the 28th of August 2014 the Y7&8 Extension group got the opportunity to go see 4 of New Zealand Authors in Person and Live at the Vodafone Event Centers. Juliette Mclver, Cath Mayo, Jill MacGregor, and Paula Green were the 4 main speakers. They got us out of our seats, laughing in our seats, they were all fantastic.

Two of the main speakers that I enjoyed on the day were Juliette Mclver and Jill MacGregor. Juliette Mclver had great sense of humor, she was really funny. She was basically out there and she didn’t care what people thought of her, she writes Children Picture Books which intrigued us older children too.

Jill MacGregor was also a Great author that I liked, she had been writing about Children of the Pacific. Jill had been to multiple island writing about the children there and how they do things she had been to Tonga and thought VSA for two years, ever since then she has had a passion, about children in the Pacific.

It came around to the questioning time, and my head was absolutely blank. Before we got to the Vodafone Events Centre, I had a lot of questions. But what I wanted to know was that Who Helped them write these books?
