Join us for the launch of 'South of Martinborough: Two Soldier Settlements & their Neighbours' from Fraser Books. A fascinating story, largely in the words of those living in the First and Second World War Soldier Settlements of Tuturumuri and Tora and their neighbours south of Martinborough, and the challenges facing the South Wairarapa district’s pioneering farmers and fishers. The district's recent success stories are also celebrated, such as the Tora Coastal Walk, Tora Collective and Tora Bombora Music festival.

Connect with the South Wairarapa community over a cup of tea and celebrate the publication of an important piece of local history as part of the upcoming Yarns in Barns: Wairarapa Festival of Reading.

This event is free. Please RSVP via Eventfinda or by contacting Hedley's Books on or 06 378 2875.

Includes afternoon refreshments.
