To mark New Zealand Chinese Language Week our special guest this month is Richard Foy.

In this talk, Richard will tell the unexpected and occasionally improbable tale of encountering his grandparents in the collections and holdings of the National Library and National Archives. It’s a tale of deeply personal, and sometimes emotional, connections with his Chinese past that brings him face-to-face with his cultural heritage, the sacrifices of his forebears, and what it means to be Chinese in New Zealand today.

Richard is the Director of Digital Strategy for the Information & Knowledge Services Branch of the Department of Internal Affairs.

No charge, all welcome.
