Writer's Talk - Elizabeth Amoore

April 26, 2024

A Whaingaroa Writers World event. Local historian, Elizabeth Amoore, a third generation Raglanite, loves history, and she particularly enjoys researching the history of this area. Come and hear about methods Liz used over a period of more than two years, as she painstakingly researched the East Street cemetery in order to try and identify those buried there. Her book ‘The Stories Behind the Headstones’ is no dull tome of boring facts but an enlightening look at the lives of early settlers, through the telling of their stories and the use of numerous photographs. Liz believes that by reading about their lives we are better able to understand the social context of how individuals and communities experienced previous eras, as well as the impact events had on them.  Koha entry.
