And it’s a wrap (for now) …

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.

My book on display in Whitcoulls, Lambton Quay.

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.
