Event details

Dr Janine Irvine is a collaborative storyteller, researcher and oral historian who writes the stories of peoples’ lives and explores connections to places and communities.

Anyone who has written, is writing, or thinking about writing local histories will find this interactive workshop helpful.

The workshop first considers important questions about the purpose and planning of local history book projects, and then considers practical matters of research, writing and publication.

Presented by: Auckland Council Libraries
