Ben Brown

Ben was appointed Te Awhi Rito New Zealand Reading Ambassador in May 2021. For thirty years he's pursued the matter of reading through his work as a writer for children and adults, a poet and performer, an occasional editor and eternal believer in the magic and majesty of words. He is also the father of two, which he considers his best work to date.
