Steve Braunius - U3A Auckland Guest Speaker

Crime doesn’t pay but it’s a ratings winner.
I like to write about murder trials. I like going to the High Court, that grand building in the most English corner of Auckland, and watching the jury watch the accused, and listening to the stories told by the prosecution and defence lawyers, and taking notes of things said and seen. The result is my latest true-crime book Missing Persons. Why is it that we all share a fascination with the awful things that happen to innocent victims?

Purpose of U3A Network 

• Promote the growth of the U3A movement
• Provide support for management and learning in U3As
• Raise the profile of the U3A movement
• Promote the benefits of lifelong learning
• Collect and disseminate the exchange of information and ideas which enable each U3A to run effectively
• Encourage and assist the formation of new U3As.

U3A’s point of difference from other organisations for Seniors is our Study Group structure. This enables us to carry out our stated aim:-
