Local author to talk books at library



Clarks Beach author Elaine Blick, who has just recently launched her fourth book, is to speak at the Waiuku Library on the morning of Friday, July 3.
The event follows the launch of her book First Names Only, the story of unmarried mothers in the 1960s, set in Auckland and Clarks Beach as it was in that era. Elaine’s mother was secretary of Childhaven, an adoption society, for 26 years and, while fiction, the novel draws on Elaine’s own experiences.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
