Libri Lounge: Country Calendar – Stories from our Rural Heartland 

This book is about hard yakka, living off the land and having a place to stand.

Anybody who has found themselves immersed in the tales of Country Calendar will be mesmerised by this book.

And, as a nod to the importance of Taranaki’s place in the farming landscape of New Zealand, the Newton farm at Urenui is emblazoned on the front of Country Calendar – Stories from our Rural Heartland.

The Taranaki hill-country holding is one of 15 properties featured in this glossy book, which celebrates 50 years of New Zealand’s longest-running TV programme.

Complementing writer Matt Philp’s fine storytelling are rich images from award-winning photographer Rob Suisted. 

In this visual session, Rob will take the audience on a journey of the rural properties that were showcased on Country Calendar and later revisited for this special book.
