Second book on shelves Second book: Eva-Maria with her latest book, launched in Upper Hutt last week.Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Upper Hutt's Parenting Expo last Thursday was the venue for the launch of a 20-year-old's second book about communicating with teens. Author Eva-Maria (she does not use her Russian surname because it is difficult to remember and pro- nounce) says the most important part of Shush, You! are five- minutes-a-day tips for better com- munication with the younger gen- eration. The Karori resident hopes it will be useful not only for parents but for the many other groups in reg- ular contact with teens. The book includes sections writ- ten by Ohariu MP Peter Dunne, Lower Hutt-based motivational speaker Billy Graham and designer Annah Stretton. Ms Stretton gives advice for employers and promotes the benefits of Gen Y in the workforce. Eva-Maria does not believe today's teens are any different from the teens of the past. Socrates described teens in a simi- lar fashion to their critics today. But what has changed dramati- cally in recent years is the envir- onment today's teens live in -- one of fast'' and more'', Eva-Maria says. Eva-Maria was born in Russia and came to New Zealand with her parents when she was six. At Athena Montessori College in Wellington she was given the opportunity to train as a mentor when she was only 13. Some of the students she men- tored were older. I kept thinking, I wish parents could know about how they feel'.'' She started writing and when it was finished approached pub- lishing houses. At 17 she published You Shut Up! aimed at giving parents insight into the thinking of their teens. Eva-Maria is now a fulltime speaker and workshop presenter in New Zealand, Australia and Russia, and hopes to visit the United States this year. Shush, You! is available from selected bookshops and eva- maria.co.nz and shushyou.com for $34.95 (website purchase includes postage). More go to library By COLIN WILLIAMS People are continuing to pour through the only entrance at Upper Hutt's revamped central library. Statistics presented to city coun- cillors, a matter of days after they voted for a 12-month deferral on any decision whether to install a back-door entrance or not, showed the library's usage for April going to new levels. The count shows almost 5000 more visitors for the month than the year before, with 20,049 people through the single'' door for a 20.7 per cent increase. April 26, the Tuesday after Easter, saw a staggering 1694 people visit the Central Library,'' the report from the city community services director, Andrea Curtis, says. Figures for the year to date, 11 months, reveal an odd result though an overall reduction of near 11 per cent and a variance of more than 27,000. This is put down to the redeve- lopment period where the library was shut for a fortnight and where, for a longer time, many of the reg- ular activities and services that attract good visitor numbers were put on hold. In contrast to the central lib- rary's strong April result, the Pine- haven branch recorded a near 20 per cent drop in its door count.
