In celebration of World Literacy Day, Boh visited Sunnyvale Primary School in West Auckland in association with the Mazda Foundation and Duffy Books in Homes. She read her book The Lotus and The Snowbird to 40 students from the Ngā Kākano Māori bilingual class, and gifted them each a copy to take home.
Duffy Books in Homes exists to inspire a love of books in children so they become adults who love to read. One dollar from every copy of The Lotus and The Snowbird sold will be donated to Duffy.
“I can’t imagine my life without reading, and I’d love to inspire that love in the next generation. It's not just great for the mind, but also for the soul.” Boh
