Many outstanding books overlooked - awards organiser

The organiser of the Nga Kupu Ora Maori Book Awards says many outstanding books of Maori interest get overlooked.

Spencer Lilley, who manages Massey University's Maori library services, says all 12 finalists merit further recognition, but one of his favourites is a history of the Taranaki land wars.

He told Waatea News it's "a fantastic book - beautfully produced".
