Au­thor makes it to short­list

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Lyn­field res­i­dent Mike Ansari has made the short­list for The Ash­ton Wylie Char­i­ta­ble Trust Book Award.

Ansari, one of sev­eral oth­ers on the short­list, is one step closer to gain­ing na­tional recog­ni­tion and a $10,000 prize.

Ansari was third last year in the un­pub­lished man­u­script cat­e­gory for his work The Per­fect I.

He has re-en­tered it this year as pub­lished.

The na­tion­wide writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion recog­nises tal­ent in the ‘‘mind, body, spirit’’ genre.

An awards evening will be held at the Hopetoun Alpha historic build­ing in Auck­land on Au­gust 15.
