Madeleine Slavick: Town Book Tour

11 June 2024, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

In a valley along a highway, four consecutive towns, as if someone had once skipped a stone.

Each town takes its English name after a British man of the 1800s and offers free Wi-Fi.

Sunned dry mountains to the east, clouds clinging to damp ones in the west. Are we safe in the middle? Are we bored?

Welcome to Town, fifty stories and fifty images by writer and photographer Madeleine Slavick, who lived in Hong Kong for almost twenty-five years before moving to a Wairarapa country road that runs from state highway to bush.


Madeleine Slavick will be discussing her book and Town will be for sale through Hedleys Books.
