The Featherston Booktown Podcast

10-05-2023 • 24 minutos

Roger Steele ONZM is a nearly retired publisher on the Kāpiti Coast. Over 25-odd years his company launched hundreds of fine writers and safeguarded a great deal of Aotearoa’s national treasure. His first published book was J.C. Sturm’s poems, and his last will be her collected works, later this year. Roger talks with Shane and Phil about his publishing experiences and what the future may hold for the publishing business.
