Three great author events in July
We’ve got three fantastic author events being held in our Napier Library in July. All these events are free and will provide a great opportunity to gain further insight into these titles for readers.
Sequoia Schmidt - Changing Gears: Ups and Downs on the New Zealand Road
Thursday 12 July 5.30pm, Napier Library, Century Theatre Foyer
As part of a New Zealand tour, Sequoia Schmidt launches Changing Gears; Ups and Downs on the New Zealand Road. The book is about her solo cycle of New Zealand last year and is set to launch in New Zealand in July at the New Zealand Mountain Book and Film Festival.
Rod Smith – Guinness Down Under: The Famous Brew and the Family Come to Australia and New Zealand
Wednesday 18 July 5.30pm, Napier Library, Century Theatre Foyer
Rod Smith discusses his book Guinness down under: The famous brew and the family come to Australia and New Zealand. Of particular interest to our locals is a great piece in the book about William Trench Guinness who ran the Moeangiangi block in the 1860s and escaped injury at the Mohaka Pa attack in April 1869. Rod will be giving away a copy of his book to a lucky winner in the audience.
Maire Leadbeater – See No Evil: New Zealand’s Betrayal of the People of the West
Thursday 26 July 5.30pm, Napier Library, Century Theatre Foyer
See No Evil, is a shocking account by one of New Zealand’s most respected authors on peace and Pacific issues. The book begins by relating the little-known history of West Papua, but its focus is on the impact of New Zealand’s foreign policy on the indigenous Melanesian inhabitants.
