Please join us at the Ministry for Culture and Heritage History Group’s next Public Talk on Wednesday 7 April at Radio NZ House, 155 The Terrace.

Deborah Challinor will talk about how she came to be writing New Zealand historical fiction, how she goes about her research, the importance of historical authenticity and associated issues such as ethics.

To illustrate these themes Deborah will share some memorable, and occasionally preferably forgotten experiences arising from researching her books. She will also discuss her writing processes and her perspective of the value of historical fiction as a form of public history in New Zealand.

Deborah is a writer and a historian. She has been writing professionally since 2000, and has had eight historical novels published as well as several works of non-fiction.

The talks take approximately 40 minutes and are followed by a 10/15 minute Q&A session.

Come to Te Wharenui seminar room on the ground floor. Start time is 12.15pm.

Hope to see you there.
