Pukapuka Talks: Native Son - SOLD OUT

Friday 25th October 2019

Join national literary taonga Witi Ihimaera in conversation with Guyon Espiner, discussing the revealing encore to his memoir, Māori Boy.

The sequel to his first award-winning memoir, Native Son picks up where Māori Boy left off. Telling a previously untold story, this new book follows Witi through his triumphs and failures at school and university, searching for love and purpose, finding his voice and identity, becoming our first published Māori novelist – and putting a secret past to rest.
