Words and Wine: Laura Williamson at Wanaka

Words and Wine: Laura Williamson at Wanaka

Enjoy a complimentary glass of Brennan wine and expect full-bodied tales with hints of adventure and danger; savour undertones of humour and humility. Join Matt Kambic, reading from his page-turning and thought-provoking book Everest Rising, as well as Laura Williamson (The Bike and Beyond: Life on Two Wheels in Aotearoa New Zealand) and Margaret Jefferies (Under the Himalayan Sky). Nomadic horseman Tim Cope will read from his book On the Trail of Genghis Khan and Peeta Wellsford will share from her new release Finding the Mountains: An Older Woman’s Guide to Skiing.

After an intermission, Craig Potton will speak. Craig’s session is deliberately broad and is sonamed to allow him to wander through topics and themes dear to him. Craig is a philosophical character; he is a fierce conversationalist and passionate conservationist. His talk will showcase his ponderings on how wilderness can rearrange your psyche, if you let it. Expect to see some stunning imagery, as Craig is one of New Zealand’s best-known landscape photographers.
