Thames (NZ): Heritage Festival 2014 BOOK LAUNCH

One event that is happening as part of the Thames Heritage Festival is the launch of a new book on Friday 21st March 2014.

This is the story about a girl who lived in Thames and was brought up by people that were two generations older, they have never been married or had children. These people were the "Lambs". It traces her life through to adulthood with all the trials and tribulations that go along with her. The story starts in 1870 when both sets of Great Grandparents on her mother's side and father's side came to N.Z. for a new life. It also incorporates Waihi as her mother came from there, and her Grandfather was the founder of Brown and Brown who made Suzy ironing boards, bread slices etc.

The book is:
by Sandy Lautenbach with Kingsley Field

The book will be filled with not only photos of the Lamb family but also of the old township of Thames. After Friday it will be available at Carsons Bookshop in Thames and from The Best Little Bookstore.
