Mr Farrell is a fiction writer and memoirist. A former director of The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, he published his memoir, The Lie That Settles, in 2013.

The next meeting of Kāpiti Genealogy will be held on Tuesday 26 March from 7.00pm at Kāpiti Community Centre, 15 Ngahina Street, Paraparaumu.
