Waitemata councillor Mike Lee (pictured left) has just published a book, Navigators and Naturalists: French Exploration of New Zealand and the Pacific (1769-1864). On Sat 9 March 2019 he spoke about his book and the subject at Waiheke Library. He was introduced by historian Paul Monin (right) and afterwards both answered questions.
From the Waiheke Radio archives – this is a recording from 2010. The Waiheke Library marked Auckland Heritage Week and International Day of the Older Person by inviting a number of older Waiheke residents into the library to share their memories of Waiheke past.
Chris Walker talks to historian Paul Monin about the history of the bay and his new book, Matiatia: Gateway to Waiheke. (This interview is also included in the 1 Dec 2012 Island Life podcast, but I thought some may want it as a stand alone podcast) Download podcast (right click, save as)
