Donovan Bixley for Featherston Years 6 to 8 Students and Art Students

Illustration Donovan Bixley




FRIDAY 7 MAY 2021, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM



When Donovan Bixley was little, he used to draw all the time. He wanted to be famous like some of his heroes who were illustrators. Because he wasn’t getting to draw the types of stories he really wanted to do, he started writing his own books. Let Donovan inspire you to follow your passion for drawing in this one hour event for school children.

Read NZ Te Pou Muramura’s Writers in Schools programme has been running for more than 40 years. It offers a unique opportunity to connect children with authors, inspiring thousands of young New Zealanders to develop a love of reading and storytelling.

Featherston Booktown is very grateful to ReadNZ Te Pou Muramura for their sponsorship support for this event and to Kahutara School for hosting Donovan Bixley.
