Bookrapt's annual seminar for 2018 is on Saturday, July 28 in the Tauranga Girls' College library from 8:45am to 12noon.
Bookrapt is a group of writers, artists, schoolteachers, librarians, parents and grandparents with a passion for children's literature. #bookrapt
Our fabulous speakers this year are James Davidson and Angie Belcher who you can enjoy along with a morning tea, raffles, book signings and a stall by local booksellers and experts in children's literature, Books A Plenty.
A cartoonist at heart, and an art teacher and deputy principal by day, James Davidson's love of comics started as a kid. When he is not working with young people, James is the creator behind the comic book Moa, which he draws and colours.
From the world of teaching and writing children’s books, to the recent writing and production of her first play, Angie Belcher has become focused on bringing books alive through role-play, readers theatre, and a chorus of voices. Her presentation at “Zap! Pow! Flash!” will focus on sharing these concepts, arming you with “super powers” for motivating readers.
