Celebrating Margaret Mahy

Children and Parents turned out in their thousands around the country to celebrate Margaret Mahy's books at the 90 participating libraries, two museums and many bookstores.  A big thanks to all who joined in.  Margaret Mahy would have been proud that we enjoyed her books so much. Afterwards, Aucklanders continued their tributes at the memorial service at Auckland Town Hall. 
Here are some photographs from the Margaret Mahy Nationwide Read Aloud:
