Dame Cath Tizard in conversation with Random House Publishing director and former Metro editor, Nicky Legat about her new autobiography, Cat Amongst the Pigeons - a Memoir.

Feisty, irreverent, shrewd, fun-loving and resourceful, Dame Cath Tizard was the driving force behind the Aotea Centre project and lifted Government House out of its stiff and starchy past and into a more relevant present.

The beloved matriarch of one of our more colourful political families, Dame Cath, formerly mayor of Auckland and our first woman Governor-General, has penned her much-anticipated memoir, Cat Amongst the Pigeons.

When discussing the more controversial aspects of her political career, Dame Cath’s tried to be frank but not spiteful. “People will be disappointed if they’re looking for a 'tell-all' expose. It’s not a slanging match,” says Dame Cath.

Come along to the library and join Dame Cath for a lively and meaningful insight into her life in politics; with some humour thrown in for good measure.

Bookings essential, phone (09) 374 1323. Refreshments will be served. Come at 5.30pm for a welcome glass of wine courtesy of Glengarry Wines.
