Summer Conversation Series: Ruth

30 January, 8:00 pm8:00 pm9:30 pm

Social Club | Raumati Summer Online Conversation Series


The first of two fantastic virtual events we’ve got lined up for our Social Club subscribers this summer is a conversation with Ruth Shaw of Manapōuri’s Two Wee Bookshops, taking place at 8pm on Tuesday 30th January.

Thanks to Ruth and her husband Lance, the small Southland township of Manapōuri (population around 200) has possibly the most books per capita in Aotearoa! Ruth’s incredible life has been published in her 2022 memoir The Bookseller at the End of the World, and she’s just released another book, Bookshop Dogs.

The event will be hosted by Shepherdess Editor Kristy McGregor – if you have any questions you’d like asked during the conversation, feel free to send them in advance to kristy@shepherdess.co.nz.

This online event is only available to Social Club subscribers. Click here to find out more or to subscribe to Social Club.
