Harry Broad

Award-winning journalist Harry Broad is a wonderful storyteller, whether writing books about remote corners of Marlborough, talking on Radio New Zealand, or entertaining audiences with gathered anecdotes.

We loved hearing his discuss his stunning book on Molesworth Station at the very first Marlborough Book Festival, so we are excited to have him back on the cusp of launching his latest work, a ramble through the Awatere Valley.

Awatere, Portrait of a Marlborough Valley 

10-11am, Saturday 7 July, Boathouse Theatre, $20 - Harry Broad in conversation with Tessa Nicholson

Harry Broad's latest book, Awatere, Portrait of a Marlborough Valley, introduces the great legends of the Awatere Valley, including 'Shirty of the Muller' and John Peter. It looks to the valley's vast stations, including Richmond Brook, Muller and Upcot, while also assessing the extraordinary growth of the wine industry. 

With its launch set for September, we are excited to be offering a sneak peek at this stunning book largely illustrated by Marlborough photographer Jim Tannock.
