Book of the Month: October 2023

Book of the Month: Shared Histories, by John Tāne Christeller.

Across the motu there are places that remind those who stop there of the bloody battles between Māori iwi and the Crown, known as the New Zealand Wars. Many do not know where these places are, and most do not stop.
In 2021 Palmerston North poet and artist John Tāne Christeller decided to visit the sites and record what he saw, and from his observations created a series of woodblock prints and short poems in English and Te Reo Māori.
This book accompanies an exhibition of the same name, so be sure to come for a visit! Buy in-store or online.
