Neville Peat - 24th Oct 2016

Neville Peat: world renowned author and photographer

Neville Peat was born in Dunedin and lives on the beautiful Otago Peninsula surrounded by the wildlife and scenery which he loves and which he is so famous for writing about.

He has written over 30 books whose titles encompass the genres of natural history, the environment, biography and geography.  The focus is particularly on New Zealand and the Sub-Antarctic Islands.

Here is a little taster of some of the topics covered in his books: seabirds, Shackleton's Whisky, Queenstown, kiwis, Stewart Island, Sir Tim Wallis, the Catlins, Lance Richdale, and wild Dunedin to name but a few. You will emerge from every one of his books far better informed than you were before you started reading and you will undoubtedly be far more enthusiastic about the subject.

Neville Peat is appearing at the Dunedin Public Library this week as part of of the Centre for the Book Symposium. His lecture is on October 27th at 6pm. Go and listen to him if you can. You will find yourself inspired.

If you can't, then pop into our lovely bookshop instead and buy a few of his books as a consolation.
