Janet Frame, Otago’s most distinguished writer (seen here in 1963), was raised and educated in Ōamaru, attending Waitaki Girls’ High School. Much of her work evokes her childhood in that town, notably her first novel Owls do cry (1955), and To the is-land (1982), the first volume of her autobiography.
