Warkworth book flies off the shelves

Strong sales of the book Warkworth: Incidents, Accidents and Tragedies has prompted author Bryan Jackson to order a reprint. Bryan says he has had excellent feedback on the book, which documents Warkworth’s colourful past, since its release in July and coverage in Mahurangi Matters.

“Who wouldn’t want to know why the local chemist was horsewhipped by the doctor’s wife or why the matron of the hospital was imprisoned?” he says.

Bryan has done three presentations on his book to community groups and has four more lined up.

The book is on sale at Warkworth Paper Plus, Warkworth District Museum and the Warkworth Information Centre.
