The M?ori language version of the story evolved from a theatrical puppet show by TORO PIKOPIKO PUPPETS, that premiered at TE ANA M?ORI ROCK-ART CENTRE in 2017 called TE REREKA - THE FLIGHT. This rock-art puppet musical was adapted as an on-line interactive e-Audiobook for the Ministry of Education in 2018, and has now been formatted as a 70 minute, 6-chapter audiobook i te reo K?i Tahu, my tribal dialect. The story is about Pourakahua, who is transformed into a spirit bird that flies to Aotearoa, New Zealand in search of her own kind. In my interpretation, she flies up the ?pihi river, meeting a host of colourful creatures living in caves and limestone rock shelters, pursued by a bevy of bird-hunters. TE REREKA WAIRUA O POURAKAHUA is informed and inspired by the ancient rock-art from the South Canterbury region. To access the bi-lingual pictorial manuscript of this audio-book and other promotional material go to: www.maorirockartpuppets.com For licensing agreements to stage public performances contact: PLAYMARKET,   PO BOX 9767, WELLINGTON 6141, NEW ZEALAND INFO@PLAYMARKET.ORG.NZ This audiobook was produced by Jeffrey Addison for AOTEAROA KINESTHETIC EDUCATIONAL ENTERTAINMENT LIMITED (AKEELTD) www.akeeltd.com

Mary Blair Destiny Audiobook

Mary Blair Destiny

Author: Erin L. Richman Narrator: Erin L. Richman Release Date: July 2019

How long can secrets remain undiscovered? What is "destiny?" Mary Blair Destiny is an unforgettable true story of serendipity, discovery, resilience, and healing. Mary Blair Destiny is based on the true story of a young woman, Dorothy, who discovers her birth parents by a series of 'accidents' -- and their affluent yet tragic lives in old Virginia. Fate and chance encounters lead Dorothy to uncover details of her birth and then her surprising circumstances as an infant. Dorothy set forth on an unwavering quest to find answers and bring healing to her life, yet she carried shame to her grave. A prominent politician, a doctor's fastidious records, and a unique name, Mary Blair, solved the puzzle of Dorothy's life. Generations later, more details are unearthed, no longer buried with those that held the deepest family secrets. Dorothy's true story is the product of a different era in American culture, but her strength and resolve remain timeless for all ages.  Following the lessons from the main characters, Richman reveals to readers virtues of looking at life as one moment, and that this present moment is irreplaceable. Richman and the lives portrayed in her story are proof that the richness of life is found in our connections with others-marriages and friendships, the moments in life that we share, and the ways that we become connected. The stories told in Mary Blair Destiny add up to a guide for living well, with inspiration for all of us.  Join author Erin Richman on this journey to resolve and heal the legacy that impacted generations of women and a branch of a family once-unknown. www.maryblairdestiny.com instagram @maryblairdestiny facebook @themaryblairproject
