New Books at the Library

We have recently received an assortment of books from the Auckland Writers Festival. These are not the usual “favourites” of our regular readers, but an exciting array of NZ authors. They include novels, essays, poetry, history, memoirs and biographies, a few examples of which are outlined below.

Book Cover: Ralph Hotere: The Dark is Light - a biography of the artist by Vincent O'Sullivan
