THE MICHAEL KING WRITERS' CENTRE TRUST
Helen Woodhouse (Honorary Secretary)
Helen has been the Takapuna Library Manager since 1990. A founding committee member of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival, she is also a founding trustee of the Lake House Trust Inc, a Frank Sargeson Trustee (since 1992), and has for ten years been the Auckland representative on the Wellington-based New Zealand Book Council.
The centre aims to promote all aspects of New Zealand's literature, including fiction and non-fiction, and to recognise Michael King's stature as a writer, historian, biographer and someone who helped New Zealand understand its cultural roots.
