Nelson Arts Festival presents SOUTHERN SCIENCE

Naomi Arnold and Rebecca Priestley, both award-winning science writers, explore what's above and beyond Aotearoa New Zealand.

In Southern Nights, Arnold tells the story of our night skies and explores what the world's oldest science, astronomy, reveals about both our past and present. In Fifteen Million Years in Antarctica, Priestley offers a deeply personal tour of the Earth's most remote and isolated continent. She reflects on what Antarctica can tell us about Earth's future and asks: do people even belong in this fragile, otherworldly place? Chaired by Lucy Hodgson.

Books will be on sale at the Page & Blackmore Festival Bookstore
