From Standing Room Only, 2:40 pm on 18 September 2016

The Bay of Plenty in the 1880s is the setting for former magazine editor Lindsay Dawson's latest novel, Scarlet & Magenta, published by outloudpress. It's Lindsay's ninth book and her most personal, based in part on letters written by her great-grandfather. In the novel, she brings together Anna, frustrated with life in the settler township of Tauranga, and Violet, who's just arrived from London with a ghastly, ambitious husband and a big secret.
