Marlborough Book Festival: In conversation with Charlotte Patterson - Whitehaven Room
"Ruth Shaw's life has been crammed with incredible adventure, and at times damned by terrible tragedy," writes Mike White in Stuff. "There have been pirates, and prostitutes, and protests and pig farming; gold mining, gambling and grief."
Ruth talks about her uplifting story of survival, her tiny Fiordland bookshops and a memoir that's helping others address wounds from their past.
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.
