US plaudits for Jeff Evans' Polynesian Navigation

A glowing review for Jeff Evans' Polynesian Navigation and the Discovery of New Zealand appears in the January edition of Midwest Book Review Bookwatch. Based in Oregon, US, MBR Bookwatch is an organisation committed to promoting literacy, library usage and small press publishing.

Reviewer Michael Dunford says of the book:
Exceptionally well written and illustrated with occasional black-and-white period photography, Polynesian Navigation and the Discovery Of New Zealand is as informed and informative as it is 'reader friendly' and thoughtfully engaging.

Dowling to speak at Frankfurt Academy programme in Taipei

Peter Dowling is among the line-up of international speakers for a 2-day training programme being held at the Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) this 10–11 February.

New Zealand is the Guest of Honour at the 2015 Exhibition, and the programme has been assisted by the Publishers Association of New Zealand.

Jointly organised by the Frankfurt Buchmesse’s Frankfurt Academy  and supported by Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture, the ‘Expanding Business’ conference aims to equip publishing professionals with answers to questions about change in the industry and networking opportunities with international players. 

Peter will be joining colleagues from Taiwan and Europe to discuss ‘Growing opportunities for independent publishers’ in a morning session on 11 February.

“It’s an honour to represent the New Zealand publishing industry at the seminar, in the year that our country is TIBE’s Guest of Honour,” he said. “I’m looking forward to a stimulating exchange of views at Taipei.”
