Monthly Luncheon at 11am and Social at 1pm.



Cashmere Club – Colombo Street South

Reservations for the luncheon to Margaret’s phone 352-4950 not later than Thursday 19th of May.

Guest Speaker will be Gavin Bishop. Gavin is a award-winning children’s picture book writer and illustrator who lives and works in Christchurch. As author and illustrator of nearly 60 books, his work ranges from original stories to retellings of Maori myths, European fairy stories and nursery rhymes.

Books, stories and pictures have provided a life-long fascination for him. Children’s picture books in particular, with their intertwined rhythms of pictures and words combining to tell a story in an often deceptively simple way, have always interested him.

His first picture book, ‘Mrs McGinty and the Bizarre Plant’ was published in 1981 by Oxford University Press. Gavin will bring along some of his books, which members are welcomed to purchase.
