Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An Unreal House Filled with Real Storms was presented as the Inaugural Margaret Mahy Memorial Lecture at the WORD Christchurch Writers and Readers Festival on 31 August 2014. The audience reaction to the lecture was electrifying. The Margaret Mahy Memorial Lecture honours the memory of one of New Zealand's greatest writers. Margaret Mahy (1936-2012) was the author of more than 100 picture books, 40 novels and 20 collections of short stories for children and young adults. Her many awards include the Carnegie Medal twice, for The Haunting (1982) and The Changeover (1984), and the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her 'lasting contribution to children's literature', and she was a Member of the Order of New Zealand. Many of her stories have strong supernatural elements but her writing concentrates on the themes of human relationships and growing up.
