The end of "Tales For Canterbury"

Almost nineteen months after we began our journey with "Tales For Canterbury", the numbers are in and money has been donated.

The anthology, put together post-February 22, 2011 Christchurch earthquake to raise funds for Red Cross, raised a very respectable $4132 which has now been passed on to this worthwhile charity still on the ground here in Christchurch.

Only a handful of the paperback copies of the anthology were left over, one of which was given to the Red Cross along with the donation, and the rest were given to the Christchurch Writer's Festival which took place this past weekend.

So this is it, the end of the journey for "Tales For Canterbury". I'm glad the money is being put to good use, and a book that reflects a moment in kiwi history is on bookshelves and in e-readers.

Thank you to editors Cassie Hart and Anna Caro. And thank you to you, esteemed reader on this particular anniversary (September 4, when it really all began), for walking with us on this journey.
