Sue Bradford at Takapuna Library Launch Event

Sue Bradford, academic, activist and politician, proved a drawcard for a large audience at Takapuna Library as she and her biographer Jenny Chamberlain launched Constant Radical. The biography traverses Sue’s journey from middle class child, through the Vietnam War and 1981 Springbok Tour protests, years in the community sector and spokeswoman for society’s marginalised, to MP, and later PhD and highly regarded academic. Welcoming Jenny and Sue to talk about the book, library manager Helen Woodhouse said she was delighted that Takapuna Library was a resource throughout Jenny's research – and that the great revelation for her in the book was the extent of Sue’s connections to the North Shore.
