Auckland Libraries: Celebrating John Logan Campbell

Michael Horton and Prof. Russell Stone

Friday 23 March 6.30pm to 8.30pm Charge applies

Come to Remuera Library to hear Michael Horton and Professor Russell Stone present their book - Reminiscences of a Long Life - about John Logan Campbell.

Trees in a park.
This is the first complete account of Campbell’s life in his own words. It covers his early years in Scotland, his pioneering lifestyle in New Zealand, his business success, his extensive overseas travel and then his return to live in Auckland, when he gifted Cornwall Park to the city. 

Published to celebrate the 200th anniversary of his birth, the book contains over 300 paintings, engravings and photographs documenting his life and includes rare works from The Cornwall Park Trust, Auckland Museum, Auckland Libraries and the Auckland Art Gallery. 

This is a remarkable and entertaining record of a remarkable life. This will be a fascinating night. We look forward to meeting you there.

There is a $5 entry charge and light refreshments will be served.

Please let us know if you are coming by phoning us on 09 520 2532.
