Pike River Mine book due


The Listener journalist Rebecca Macfie’s book Tragedy at Pike River Mine: How and Why 29 Men Died, will be launched in Greymouth on November 15 — four days before the third anniversary of the disaster. Organisers said yesterday everyone in Greymouth — not only Pike River families — was invited to attend the launch at the Blaketown Rugby Clubrooms, and so far 100 had accepted.
