From the archive to the book
Join us for the Friends of the Turnbull Library Founder Lecture 2017.
How does the historian get from footnotes to text? Or vice versa? Dr Malcolm McKinnon draws on his experience researching and writing NZ economic history to probe the often unpredictable journey from the archive to the book.
Light refreshments will be served after the lecture.
