Honouring Ching Ming/Qingming Festival, and part of Auckland Libraries' HeritageTalks programme.

When the gold in the South Island ran out in the 1870s, Chinese miners dispersed around the country and transformed themselves into market gardeners, merchants and shopkeepers.

Author Helene Wong (Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story), introduces us to some of these intriguing people, and the places they occupied in Auckland’s history.
