Author Talk: Woman Mean Business

By Catherine Bishop

When: Wednesday 13 November 
Time: 1pm
Where: Tauranga Library

In the nineteenth century, we are told, a woman’s place was in the home. But take a look beyond the public rhetoric and women can be found engaged in commercial activities throughout New Zealand.

From a travelling midwife to a tragic school proprietor in the Bay of Plenty area and beyond, explore the successful and the outright failures, the heart-warming and the tragic, the everyday and the scandalous stories of colonial New Zealand businesswomen.

No registration required. Books available for purchase on the day.
