This morning I heard Mike Hosking from Newstalk ZB talking about this tribute by Paul Vitello in the New York Times –  and Mike is right – it is an articulate piece. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/26/books/margaret-mahy-childrens-author-dies-at-76.html?_r=1&ref=obituaries

It seems Margaret’s tattoo has piqued the interest of many, as Vitello mentions it too. I wonder if I will be brave enough to have the tattoo of pirate or something equally as quirky when I am 62!

Tomorrow Kim Hill will be discussing Margaret Mahy’s works with another well known New Zealand author, Elizabeth Knox (author of The Vintner’s Luck and other works). http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/saturday
