Pukapuka Talks: Our Grandfathers

15:30 pm

208 Bridge St

During his childhood on a farm near Te Karaka, west of Gisborne, Ian Trafford’s father came home one day with his grandfather Alick’s secret First World War diaries. Ian soon knew that some day the real, raw story of our Kiwi boys in this un-great war, and afterwards, needed to be told. In August, that story made its way into the world as the novel, Into the Unknown. Ian will be joined on stage by fellow Nelson-based author, William Moloney, whose 2015 novel, The Battle of Messines Road, was also based on his grandfather’s WWI diary.
