Book Launch 7 November 2010

A gathering at Paige’s bookshop in Whanganui on 7 November 2010 saw the culmination of a project dear to Sister John Bosco Kendall.  Sisters, family and friends gathered with her to celebrate and launch her new photo book “Waters of Wanganui  -  Nga Wai o Whanganui”.  
As stated in the book, “Whanganui and its surroundings have featured significantly in her life as a child, young person and adult.  Her love of amateur photography began in the 1980’s and has grown into a particular interest in landscape photography”.


Following a karakia from kaumatua Morvin Simon, all joined in singing the waiata ‘Te Aroha’. 
In officially launching the book, Catherine Shelton rsj spoke of the aptness of the quotes which accompanied each photo.  The formal part of the launch concluded with the singing of ‘Whanganui, Whanganui’.


People then took the opportunity to have John Bosco sign their purchased books while enjoying conversation and morning tea together.

Those interested in purchasing a copy of the book may do so from Paige’s Book Gallery, 60 Guyton Street, Whanganui.   Price, $27.99GST incl.
