Latesha Randall and Seb Walter
Book Launch: The To-Be List
Sunday 2 July, 10am.
As a business owner, editor of travel magazine Arrival, and children’s book author, Latesha (Tesh) Randall is the first to admit she’s a chronic doer. She even used to create a list every weekend of things to accomplish. One Saturday morning, however, when she sat down to perform this little ritual, her pen made an absent-minded error. Instead of “do,” it scribbled “be” at the top of the square, pink sticky note. Ever since that day, she’s been intrigued with exploring the concept of being rather than doing. This book is a collection of her insights over the years.
Co-founder of Raglan Coconut Yoghurt and The Good Agency, Sebastian (Seb) Walter is Latesha’s business and life partner. When Tesh started on her “to be” journey, Seb followed it with interest. Eventually he joined her, contributing his own “bes” to their collection. Seb loves the ocean (especially riding waves!), so it’s only natural that he and Tesh live in the sunny, seaside surf town of Raglan. He enjoys learning about permaculture, sustainability, and building. His latest project is designing and building an off-the-grid ‘tiny house’ on their land.
Come celebrate these local authors’ foray into international publishing, with the New Zealand launch of their book The To-Be List as published by Blue Mountain Arts in Boulder, Colorado.
What began as a simple personal blog project written over four years has now been turned into a collection of short, thoughtful chapters compiled to inspire you on the journey of doing less and being more.
An informal Q&A session with the authors will conclude with cake and book signings.
This is a free community event.
