Marlborough Book Festival: In conversation with Barbara DeLeo - Whitehaven Room
'Wrens Under the Radar' by Marlborough librarian Colleen Shipley is inspired by the true story of eight women posted to a top secret mission in Blenheim from November 1942 to May 1944. The story of loss, healing and friendship provides a vivid snapshot of life in New Zealand during World War II.
Colleen discusses her inspiration, fascinating research discoveries and road to publication.
The 2022 Marlborough Book Festival runs from 6.30pm Thursday 7 July through to 5pm Sunday 10 July with a range of author sessions on across at the weekend at the ASB Theatre, Blenheim and Spy Valley Wines. More info at the Marlborough Book Festival website.
