The Commuting Book presents ...

Stories on the Go, a new way to get your daily dose of words for those who can’t live without them, or who don’t usually have time to read. Find a QR code on a bus, scan it and read a short piece written by a New Zealand author. Whatever your age or interests, there’ll always be something for you. The project launches on 1st of August on selected bus lines, and features work from WORD Christchurch writers, with information about their upcoming festival appearances. #ReadNZ!
