Author Spotlight: Shilo Kino
Due to other commitments, writer Shilo Kino will unfortunately be unable to attend the Featherston Booktown Karukatea Festival this year. Shilo was scheduled to talk to Liz Mellish on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 at St Teresa's. Instead, we have asked another exciting author, Nadine Anne Hura, to fill the spot – and she has graciously accepted our invitation at late notice. We were unable to amend the printed Festival mini-guide before it went to print. For more details on the upgraded event, view Author Spotlight: Nadine Anne Hura.
