Found: Surfboard on motorway

A Box of Light reader found a board on the side of the motorway today. It looks like it might have slipped off a ute – board was in a boardbag so not badly damaged at all. It has a big Tino Rangatiratanga flag painted on the bottom.
If it sounds like yours email the team here at Box of Light.

The Mirror Book: With Charlotte Grimshaw, Hanover Hall

The Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival is very pleased to be bringing Charlotte Grimshaw to Dunedin to talk about her memoir, The Mirror Book (RHNZ Vintage, 2021). July 29, 2021
A compelling and sometimes uncomfortable read, The Mirror Book is Charlotte’s examination and re-examination of the narratives surrounding her memories of a childhood in a famous literary family, and the effect the careful construction of those narratives had on her sense of self and stability, and on the life she created for herself.
