A merry Christmas to all our readers. We hope you enjoy the last NB of 2017. This issue is packed with yuletide gifts, from cards and annuals in the Reed Gallery, to a special Southern Hui with Creative Cities. We rock things up with a tribute to the late, great David Bowie, and pop in to our new local at the South Dunedin library and community hub. And what would Christmas be without books? Enjoy a few good reads over the summer and we'll see you in 2018!
