2016 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards results

We are thrilled that our author Richard Nunns won at last night’s Ockham NZ Book Awards in Auckland! He won the Judith Binney Best First Book Award for Illustrated Non-fiction for Te Ara Puoro: A journey into the world of Maori music. Unfortunately, due to ill-health, Richard was unable to attend, but his daughters, Molly and Lucy Nunns, received the award on his behalf.
