Discover stories and art around Waitematā.
Find beautiful literature and art created by young local authors and artists originally published in Toitoi: A Journal for Young Writers and Artists. Paired with Elizabeth Corin’s Notes on Reading.
Elizabeth’s photographs capture her subjects engrossed in this personal yet prevalent act. Elizabeth pays homage to André Kertész’s signature works, which celebrate reading, documenting its continued appeal.
In these moments we glimpse at private pleasure, the allure of narratives unfolding, of escape and so much promise. Launch event at Dorothy Butler Children’s Bookshop Saturday 13 August 2.30pm.
Works are on show at Studio one Toi Tū (foyer), Grey Lynn Library, Leys Institute external hoardings, Leys Institute Little Library and Parnell Library.
This event is part of Auckland Libraries’ We Read Auckland | Ka Pānui Tātau I Tāmaki Makaurau.
