The organisers of New Zealand Book Month have announced a special evening of activities aimed at fathers and their sons to encourage blokes to pick up books .
Timed to coincide with Father's Day and entitled A Word in his Ear, the aim of the event at Auckland Town Hall is to promote reading as a "manly" activity :
in an evening of male bonding over sports, adventure and literature.Abebooks meanwhile has a very good list of Kiwi fiction.
