The green of spring with Dunedin novelist Paddy Richardson - National Library of New Zealand

23 July 2019 5:30pm — 6:30pm

The National Library of New Zealand is delighted to welcome Dunedin novelist Paddy Richardson to the Library, at the start of her Randell Cottage Residency. Paddy is the author of seven novels and two collections of short stories.

Paddy’s most recent novel, "Through the Lonesome Dark" (Upstart Press, 2017), is set in World War I, and she plans to use her Residency in Wellington to continue work on a planned sequel. "The Green of Spring" tells the story of young mining activist Otto Bader who is arrested as an ‘enemy alien’ and incarcerated on Somes Island along with others of Austrian and German origins.

During her residency at Randell Cottage Paddy will be carrying out research in the Turnbull Library.

This free event is brought to you by The Friends of the Turnbull Library in conjunction with the Randell Cottage Writers Trust.

Booking is not required.
