Book - I Know This To Be True
Truth, wisdom, beauty and other stuff that matters for 60 New Zealanders.
This is a book about New Zealanders living fascinating lives and the things they know to be true, the things they believe in and the things they have learned. You may have heard of some of them, but that's not what is important. It's about how they got to where they are and the truths they learned along the way. And the truth is compelling.
Created by publisher Geoff Blackwell, television producer Ric Salizzo and musician Mike Chunn, this book and television project is in support of the Play It Strange Trust, dedicated to cultivating the song-writing talent of young New Zealanders.
Among the 60 contributors are Dave Dobbyn, Dick Frizzell, Trelise Cooper, Rhys Darby, John Campbell, Judy Bailey, Gin Wigmore, Brendon McCullum, John Kirwan, Neil Finn, Danielle Cormack, Tiki Taane, Steve Hansen, Al Brown, Valerie Adams, Oscar Kightley, Sophie Pascoe, Beauden Barrett, Lucy Lawless, Colin Meads, Zoë Bell, Alan Gibbs, Jools & Lynda Topp, Pita Sharples, Peter Gordon, Silvia Cartwright, Sean Fitzpatrick, Rena Owen, Kevin Roberts and Mahé Drysdale.
