Marlborough Book Festival: Rebecca Priestley in conversation with Nikki Macdonald - Anderson Theatre
Should we be paralysed by fear or optimistic for the world future generations will inherit? Rebecca experiences both emotions in her eco-memoir, 'Fifteen Million Years in Antarctica', reflecting on her three visits to Antarctica. The book was praised by reviewers and longlisted for the general non-fiction award at the 2020 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
She discusses the science carried out in Antarctica; her awe for the landscape and wildlife; and her concerns and hope for the future.
The 2021 Marlborough Book Festival runs from 7pm Friday 9 July through to 4.30pm Sunday 11 July with a range of author sessions on across at the weekend at the ASB Theatre, Blenheim. More info at the Marlborough Book Festival website.
