Keri Hulme's generous koha for Māori writers
The original manuscript of the bone people, by legendary author Keri Hulme (Kāi Tahu and Kāti Māmoe), will be auctioned at Dunbar Sloane on the 11th of August, this year.
Keri Hulme was the first New Zealander to win the prestigious Booker Prize in 1985. She was also the first writer to win the Booker Prize, with a debut novel. Proceeds of the sale will be gifted to the Māori Literature Trust, to support Māori writers.
