The Christchurch Children's Bookshop hosted the What Lies Beneath Exhibition for September. Near the end of the month we held workshops for students 10-18 years old at Burnside High School. Eighty students attended, learning how to paint a red poppy, write poetry, structure their stories, refine their character's personality and look closely at their language. At the end authors Melinda Szymanik, Tania Roxborogh, Desna Wallace, Maria Gill and illustrator/author Fifi Colston shared their latest project with the students. A fun day had by all.
