In this bonus edition of Gone By Lunchtime, the prime minister talks to Toby Manhire at the Auckland Writers Festival
Last weekend at the Auckland Writers Festival, Jacinda Ardern spoke with Spinoff editor Toby Manhire about the extraordinary election campaign of 2017, and the book it inspired, Stardust and Substance, edited by Stephen Levine for VUP.
Before a packed house at the Aotea Centre the prime minister talked candidly about everything from Andrew Little’s decision to resign and the rush to remake the campaign to the less-than-delighted mood on election night itself.
If Facebook cannot change its ways, will they still use if for advertising in 2020? Why is she a fan of Nancy Drew and Ernest Shackleton – and its lessons for “how not to die on the ice”? All that plus Jacinda Ardern does an impression of Helen Clark.
