It's a Kind of Magic

Mega award winning writer Kate de Goldi‘s books are so intricately constructed, so beautifully voiced, they are beloved by adults and children alike.

Steeped in stories and story-telling, Kate is joined by magician Gareth Ward, aka The Great Wardini, whose award-winning debut Young Adult novel is a steampunk potboiler of a story.

Kate de Goldi’s latest book 'From the Cutting Room of Barney Kettle', about a boy film-maker who likes to invent stories but stumbles on a real mystery, won the 2016 Storylines Notable Junior Fiction Award and the Esther Glen Award at the 2016 NZ Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.

Gareth Ward’s unpublished manuscript for his novel 'The Traitor and the Thief' won the Storylines Tessa Duder award in 2016.
