Lynn Jenner’s deeply thoughtful book, Peat, enlists the help of deceased cultural eminence Charles Brasch to explore the tensions between words and land, and between society and ecology, as a response to the recent development of the Kapiti Expressway, a so-called ‘Road of National Significance’.
Lynn Jenner is a writer and teacher of writing. She lives on the Kapiti coast. Her 2015 book, Lost and Gone Away, addresses issues of absence, both individual and communal.
Lynn will be talking with environmental planner and social scientist Charlotte Šunde.
