Monday 6th March saw 70 people attend an exclusive event at the old Rakinos Bar (now Gaze Commercial) on High Street, to launch Golden Days to the world. Dr Paula Morris (Ngāti Wai) opened the proceedings with a beautiful mihi written by Caroline’s kaumatua, John Retimana (Te Uri o Hau). Caroline followed with a speech and a reading from Golden Days. Finally, there was a laying of hands on the book, and a karakia, sending the book safely into the world with mana and aroha. Tehei mauri ora! Wine by Invivo and book sales by Unity.
