Ignition Kids - Aotearoa's latest Children's Book Festival.

Main image

Ignition Kids is a new Children's Book Festival in Dunedin, NZ, brought to you by UBS Otago and Dunedin Public Libraries. Running this year on 2-3 November we're celebrating some stellar Kiwi kids' authors, including Miriama Kamo, Gareth Ward, Pauline Smith plus some talent closer to home: Barbara Else, Ray Huber, Robyn Belton, and Rachel McCoubrey.

We're raising money to pay for authors' travel, accommodation, meals and a little bit of a koha for their contribution. It's a joint initiative by University Book Shop (Otago) Ltd (a registered charity CC20527) and Dunedin Public Libraries. Both of us are not-for-profit and nothing-but-passion when it comes to the benefits of reading and story-telling for kids of all ages, backgrounds and interests.

Use of funds:

Your donation will directly go to authors' travel, accommodation, meals, & koha. Any extra goes toward a the Kapa Haka & Pasifika children's groups celebrating with us. Beyond we'll use a little bit of money for 2018 promo & some rainy day $$s for 2019.
