New organisation for New Zealand's book scene

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:21 pm on 14 August 2019

Book and publishing organisations have come together to create The Coalition of Books, an umbrella agency for New Zealand books and writers. 

The plan is to develop initiatives for authors, booksellers, and festivals, and overall, strengthen the literary sector. 

We ask Steve Braunias, Editor of Newsroom's Reading Room, and the man we turn to for all things literary, what this new organisation means for Kiwi authors.
