A timely and perceptive memoir, Alison Jones' book was shortlisted for the General Non-fiction Award at the 2021 Ockham NZ Book Awards. Join us for a lunchtime session to hear Alison speak with Amanda Thomas. All welcome, no RSVP required. 'This book is about my making sense here, of my becoming and being Pākehā. Every Pākehā becomes a Pākehā in their own way, finding her or his own meaning for that Māori word. This is the story of what it means to me. I have written this book for Pākehā – and other New Zealanders – curious about their sense of identity and about the ambivalences we Pākehā often experience in our relationships with Māori'.
