All Ages

Steve Braunias speaks with Miro Bilbrough about her memoir, In The Time of the Manaroans, which he declared on Newsroom the ‘best written book of non-fiction of 2020’.

Miro Bilbrough made two films inspired by her unusual upbringing before penning her extraordinary memoir, In the Time of the Manaroans, which brilliantly captures a largely unwritten history of the Te Tau Ihu’s alternative culture. Isolated in rural poverty, the lives of Miro and her small family – literary father Norman and sister Paulo – are radically enhanced by the Manaroans, charismatic hippies who use their house as a crash pad on journeys to and from a commune in a remote corner of the Marlborough Sounds.

And then Miro heads to Nelson to complete her schooling...

Chaired by Steve Braunias.
