              AUNTIES is a collection of interviews, stories and essays from organisers, activists and the people behind the scenes who make political change in Aotearoa every day. The publication was crowdfunded in 2017 so it could be radically self-published as an unapologetic tribute an...d snapshot of the women, trans, non-binary and intersex leaders who make movements happen despite all odds. Three years later, AUNTIES brings together a punchy, grounding and nourishing how-to-guide for people fighting for racial, economic and social justice in today's world. Co-edited by community and union organisers, Nadia Abu-Shanab, Ella Grace McPherson-Newton and Kassie Hartendorp, AUNTIES shares reflections, art and poetry from the aunties, leaders and role models they have been in relationship with through their political work. AUNTIES shows insight into the unique traditions of political organising in Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, while paying tribute to the global activists who continue to influence our region. From the home to the workplace, the whenua to the marae, the garage to the university and the kitchen to the community, AUNTIES takes us everywhere political change happens.

              From out of the housing crisis towards the end of the Second World War, Auckland City's mayor John Allum came up with the idea of turning former military camps into transit housing, filling the gap between inadequate slum areas and better homes provided by the government schemes,... amongst others. The idea took hold nationwide for a time, until the crisis eventually eased. Today, hardly anything remains. A Place to Stay awhile details the stories and the lives at Auckland's five transit housing camps, at Mt Victoria in Devonport, Western Springs, Victoria Park, the Auckland Domain, and Camp Bunn near Panmure, as well as Transit Camps in other areas of New Zealand..

              Despite modern technology, many people in today's world find 'waiting' to be a challenge. "Have patience!" or "Stop fretting!" Sound familiar? Join Barbara Harry in discovering the True Source of waiting in stillness and rest through this contemplative parable. Come w...ait with me... take your time. "My writings have come out of a journey of reflection and prayer. It's a book of scripture and poems written over a number of years as God dealt with heart issues on my own personal journey. The reflective writing unleashed in that time of burn-out has been a major part of the healing process. I began to understand the Creator of the universe had wired me with many creative gifts to express God's heart including as His pen. In my parables I'm also trying to allow room for God to speak to people. A viewer has a way of interpreting a painting differently to the painter. I'm painting pictures with words."
