Join us Friday 21 October from 6pm to celebrate the opening of Megan Dunn: The Mermaid Chronicles and Lucien Rizos: Everything.

At 6.30pm former Attorney-General Christopher Finlayson will launch Lucien Rizos: Everything, the photographic project dedicated to Rizos’s late uncle and Labour MP for Island Bay (1969–78) Gerald O’Brien. We will also be joined virtually by MeduSirena from the Wreck Bar in Florida, one of the professional mermaids Megan Dunn has included in The Mermaid Chronicles.

Refreshments will be provided with grateful thanks to our loyal wine sponsor Spade Oak Vineyard and to our new Nelson-based beer sponsor McCashin's Brewery from Nelson.
