Takaka Library: Author Talk – My Beautiful Island by Chris Potter

Wednesday 14th July 2021

Join us for a fascinating talk by Chris Potter about his book My Beautiful Island.

Chris Potter discovered his mother Norah’s diaries just after she died. My Beautiful Island tells the story of Norah’s journey from England to Hong Kong as a young, single, professional woman in the 1930s; from romance and marriage; to war and survival; then building a new life in the years that followed.

Find out about Chris Potter’s early childhood spent in a Hong Kong prison camp during World War II, and his mother Norah’s extraordinary life.

It’s free to attend and everyone is welcome.

Cash book sales will be available.
