Te Ara: Te Hokinga Mai

Te Ara: Māori Pathways of Leadership, the exhibition of taonga and Krzysztof Pfeiffer photography curated by Paul Tapsell and Merata Kawharu, returns to Aotearoa on Friday 28 March. Te Ara has toured Poland, the UK, Germany and Canada for more than three years and now will go on show at the Rotorua Museum, where a pōwhiri on Friday will welcome a delegation from the Musqueam Indian Band of Vancouver, who are escorting Te Ara home. 

Ngā mihi mahana ki a Krzysztof, Merata rāua ko Paul mo tō koutou mahi whakamīharo.

Libro International is proud to publish the accompanying book Te Ara. Oratia Media has supported the exhibition with project management since its inauguration in Olstyn, Poland in September 2010.

A sea story from Tessa Duder

In the March issue of North & South magazine Tessa Duder writes about sailing from Australia to New Zealand in the first Trans-Tasman Tall Ships race. 

Tessa combines a deep knowledge of sailing with a rare storytelling flair. 

In 2012 Libro International published her book The Story of Peter Blake, the life of one of our most famous sailors retold for younger readers; and this November we're delighted to be releasing her new collection Sea Stories, a dozen short stories about children and young people living and learning on boats. 

One of the stories took inspiration from Tessa's recent voyage - but we can't give any more away than that just yet!
