Author Spotlight: Yes, Minister with Chris Finlayson

Sunday 14 May 2023, 11:00 AM – Midday, Kiwi Hall. $15

Chris Finlayson, a highly regarded senior member of John Key’s Cabinet, recounts the good years – and the not-so-good ones – in a life of politics. A respected Minister of Arts and Culture and an Attorney General who unwaveringly upheld the rule of law, Chris, as Minister for Treaty Negotiations, concluded an unprecedented number of Treaty of Waitangi settlements with iwi and hapū across Aotearoa New Zealand between 2008 and 2017. Chris will discuss his political “sketch” (as he calls it) with Featherston Booktown Chair Peter Biggs and expound his apologia pro vita sua.

(Please note: the venue change was originally the Waimarie/RSA- but has now changed to the Kiwi Hall in the Anzac Hall Complex. All other details about the event remain the same.)
