Off the Page – Tuai: A Traveller in Two Worlds


Palmerston North Central Library | Fri 16 March, 2018

In early 1817 Tuai, a young Ngare Raumati chief from the Bay of Islands, set off for England. On his epic journey Tuai would visit exotic foreign ports, mix with teeming crowds in the huge metropolis of London, and witness the marvels of industrialisation. With sympathy and insight, Alison Jones and Kuni Kaa Jenkins uncover the remarkable story of one of the first Māori travellers to Europe.

Join us on March 16th at the events centre in the City Library and listen to co-author Alison Jones speak about this fascinating book.

In association with Massey University, Bridget Williams Books and Bruce McKenzie Booksellers.
