Ramble On book launch


Join us at the central Auckland Library for a special Sunday afternoon event with author and artist Z.R. Southcombe. Her new book Ramble On: A Celebration of Walking in NZ and Around the World explores the connection between walking and (mental) health, celebrating the simple joy that can come from exploring DOC tracks, connecting with nature and slowing down. Ramble On is part coffee table book, part non-fiction; a fully illustrated book featuring interviews, personal essays and hand-lettered quotes.

The event promises to be a book launch but not like you’ve seen before – expect to engage with the art of walking in creative, fun ways. Featuring guest speakers, spot prizes and children’s activities there will be something for guests from all walks of life. Southcombe will be joined by Grace Penlain and Mayur Wadhwani, contributing authors.
