Author Kate Fraser at Mosgiel Library

On Friday 5th September Mosgiel Library was lucky enough to have author Kate Fraser doing a talk to celebrate her new book and NZ Book Month. Kate’s new book “Cooking Times: A culinary journey through kiwi kitchens from the 1930s to the present day” is a pleasure to read, so make sure you come in and place a hold.

Everyone enjoyed listening to Kate and hearing about her experiences and her cook book, lots of yummy food was discussed.
