Do you love reading?
The Altrusa Club of Wellington presents a Literacy Quiz fund raiser to benefit Storylines, who promote the importance of reading and literature for children, and Literacy Aotearoa, who are adult literacy providers. Celebrate International Literacy Day in style at the Amora Hotel on Thursday the 8th of September from 7pm.
Support your local community and test your knowledge alongside our special guests; Tessa Duder, Tim Jones, Martin Bosley and more [TJ notes: This modest 'more' includes Jenny Pattrick and Elizabeth Knox!]. Invite a friend or gather a team, but be sure to get your ticket to be in to win over $2500 in prizes.

Tim says: I like quizzes! Especially if the questions are about international cricket averages (1969-2011), the members of 1970s bands - did you know that Ari Up of The Slits (a sad loss to the world last year) was the stepdaughter of Johnny Rotten? - and the science fiction of R L Fanthorpe.
I'm not sure I'll be getting too many questions in those categories in the Altrusa Literacy Quiz: in fact, the questions are divided into these categories:
Our favourite fictional characters
Do your answers add up?
What's in a name? They used to call me Piggy!
Catching the Current
Off the page, do you know what's going on in the world?
Was it better as a book?
I think it'll be a fun night. If you'll be in Wellington on 8 September, it'd be great if you could come along.
