The Plimmer Legacy – two wonderful book launches

16 May 2019

The Plimmer Legacy – a family story from early Wellington to modern farming in the Rangitikei has now been published – my 18th book!

The Plimmer family had two wonderful book launches: one, on 16 May, in the woolshed on their Motukawa property near Taihape. This was a marvellous country affair, with about 250 family, neighbours and rural men and women of all persuasions assembling for a very fine woolshed lunch, a few drinks and some suitable speeches.

There was a second book launch at the Wellington Club the following week – a rather more corporate celebration (with a somewhat different dress code!) but no less enjoyable.

There’s an excellent writeup about the book on the Motukawa Land Co website and some photos of both book launches on the Motukawa Instagram page.
