Anne Salmond is one of New Zealand’s most pre-eminent historians, and her recent publication, the acclaimed Aphrodite’s Island (2009), is the first to take her off-shore to Tahiti.

Thomas Keneally is a well-known and prolific writer of fiction and non-fiction. His fascination for the people on the margins of history has seen him embark on a three-volume history of Australia, the first of which was published in 2009, Australians: From Origins to Eureka.

While their backgrounds may be different, they are both master storytellers. They talk with Kim Hill about the origins of their success, their shared passion for history, the joys of discovery, and the satisfaction that comes with bringing forgotten stories back to life.

Presented as a part of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.
