Featherston Booktown Chair Retires

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 18 September 2017 After three highly successful Featherston Booktown festivals, the Chair of the Featherston Booktown Trust and founder of the concept in New Zealand, Lincoln Gould, is retiring from the Board of Trustees. "I have seen Featherston Booktown grow from a brave idea to a highly successful annual event, attracting thousands of book lovers to Featherston and engaging positively with the local community," Mr Gould said. "As well, it's very gratifying that, with Featherston Booktown playing a key role, the town now has six thriving bookshops – and, possibly, one more to open shortly – which add to the current vibrancy and popularity of Featherston."
