Christchurch Book Launch: Keepers of History - New Zealand Centenarians Tell Their Stories

4 April 2019 10:00am

In 2017, Renée Hollis interviewed 120 people over the age of 100, living in every region of New Zealand. Along the way she met opera singers and farmers, a politician and a racing car driver, a nun and a freedom fighter with Gandhi, and even a member of Hip Operation — the oldest hip-hop group in the world! From the everyday to the extraordinary, these are the stories of people who have lived through history and whose message of resilience has so much to offer the generations that have followed.
