Motueka Library: Author Talk - Nick Horgan

Thursday 7th December 2017

Come to Motueka Library and hear author Nick Horgan talk about his latest book Antipodean Traveler.

Antipodean Traveler tells the story of a somewhat naive young Kiwi traveling throughout North America and Canada in the late 70s and early 80s. Full of high adventure, his escapades include jet boating both up and down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, somehow surviving, to then take on the Yukon River in Alaska and then back to Alberta in Canada where he wins his division of the World Jet boat Championships. And these are just a few of his adventures!

Nick grew up in Motueka and has interesting tales to share about his travelling, adventurous escapades and stories of the Christchurch earthquake.

Signed copies of Antipodean Traveler will be available for purchase.

Light refreshments will also be available.

Bookings not required.
