STLL LIFE LAUNCH IN WELLINGTON
Nigel Watson & Jane Ussher with PM John Key
A wonderful night was had by all at the Still Life launch at Parliament on Wednesday evening. The Prime Minister spoke warmly about his time in Antarctica and how special seeing the huts in person is. He made the audience laugh and set a relaxed tone for an enjoyable evening. The Prime Minister said, though he doesn't get the time to read many books during the year, he has three books set aside to read over the Christmas break: My Journey by Tony Blair, The Third Man by Peter Mendelson and Still Life by Jane Ussher and Nigel Watson.
