Last weekend I gave a one-hour talk with Q&A session that wrapped up a hectic two-week promotional push which my publishers organised for my book Waitangi: A Living Treaty. I made multiple appearances on radio, one on TV, held a book signing, a public talk, and featured in the national news.
I’ve also been featuring aspects of my thoughts on the Treaty on my blog, in a short series that finished yesterday.

More media opportunities may come along – I’ll let you know. The book has also been picked up as a recommended text at AUT. Meanwhile, if you want the book itself, check it out online (click the cover to buy) or go to any good New Zealand bookshop.
