Words & Wine

Grab a glass of wine, dim the lights, light the fire, turn the volume up and enjoy full-bodied tales from NZ Mountain Book of the Year winner Geoff Spearpoint, reading from a life time of exploring ‘The Great Unknown’ that is the Southern Alps. Shaun Barnett will show us how the Tararua Tramping Club has been ‘Leading the Way’ for 100 years, as the first tramping club in NZ. Hear why they call Chloe Phillips-Harris ‘Fearless’, as we ride with her on the Mongol Derby; a 1000-kilometre endurance horse-back race across Mongolia. Justin Venable will bring to life each paddle stroke as he reads the African whitewater adventure diary of his late friend, Hendri Coetzee: ‘Living the best day ever’. And to finish off, Lisa Choegyal will read from her home in Kathmandu, her words from ‘Everest, reflections of the Solkhumbu’.
