“Kaiapoi Shakes”

This neat little book was launched in Kaiapoi on Friday night.  Edited by Stan Darling and Jackie Watson, Kaiapoi and Pines-Kairaki people tell about their experiences during and after the September quake – and on past February. There was, of course, a wide variety of experience but all drawn together in the event that shook everyone up.

We all have stories to tell (haven’t we recounted them many times since then?) so it is good to have some of them written down.

And as a suggestion, write your own stories down for your family and descendants.  I wonder if I will follow my own advice?

The book is available from Kaiapoi Take note for $20.00. The propoprietor there, Phillipa Watkins, is also one of the story-tellers.
