Through the Lonesome Dark

Admission by donation / 7.30pm

Part of the inaugural Waitaki Arts Festival.

Join bestseller and award-winning author Paddy Richardson at Whitestone City as she talks about her latest novel Through the Lonesome Dark – set in an unrelenting era in the mining region of   West Coast NZ before the First World War, a time that wasn’t for people who didn’t have physical stamina.  As a World War approaches, the harsh realities become apparent in this exploration of one family’s dark times. You have an opportunity to hear about this unforgettable, compelling and superbly written historical novel that can transport you back to a setting so real you will feel like you are there.

We invite you then to conclude your evening by exploring Dark Tales of Waitaki, following clues to places around the Victorian Precinct where grim tales will be revealed.
