Developing a local history book for children 'Barkell and Mr Arkell' with Lynnie Howcroft, Elianna Gabriel, Jade Oskar Harvey and S’Wee H’ng.

Join Lynnie Howcroft and the team, Elianna Gabriel, Jade Oskar Harvey and S’Wee H’ng, behind the children’s book, Barkell and Mr Arkell.

They’ll discuss their tentative journey into self-publishing, and how they developed this true story of characters who lived in Newton East, 80 years before construction of the Newton Motorway Interchange.

It promises to be an inspirational discussion on bringing history to life, for both adults and children.

Booking not essential, however to be sure of a place please phone Research Central 09 890 2412 or book online:
