New Zealand Post Book Awards 2014
Friday 8 August 2014
"Quintessential Kiwi character shines through" is how 2014's New Zealand Post Book Awards' judges describe this year's finalists.
Selected from 150 entries, the judges say "the 2014 finalist books capture the essence of the country's psyche - not just in place and people, but in capturing what makes us tick as New Zealanders."
The overall winner from the field of 18 finalists will be announced on Wednesday 27 August at a ceremony at Te Papa.
Also announced will be the four category winners - fiction, poetry, non-fiction and illustrated non-fiction - along with the People's Choice winner and the Neilsen Booksellers Choice award.
