Pukapuka Talks | Author in Schools

Selina Tusitala Marsh visits schools to talk about her two inspirational graphic novels for young readers, Mophead (winner of the 2020 Margaret Mahy Award) and Mophead Tu (a finalist for the 2021 award). In the telling of these heartfelt and often hilarious tales, Selina encourages tamariki to embrace their differences.

Selina is available to visit four schools in the Whakatū Nelson-Tasman region. Suitable for years 5-9.
