Jacinda Ardern speaks at launch of Stardust and Substance book chronicling her rise to power

Jacinda Ardern spoke at the launch of the book Stardust and Substance: The New Zealand General Election of 2017 in Wellington this evening.

The new book, edited by Stephen Levine, "captures some of the magic of Jacinda Ardern's extraordinary seven-and-a-half weeks' campaign, defeating a National Party government in power for nine years."

Ms Ardern read some passages from the book and recalled memories from the "extraordinary and interesting" period in her life.

A lot of the General Election was a "blur" for the Prime Minister who says the book serves as a good artifact to refer to.

The book is already out of stock on the Victoria University Press website, the publishers of the book.
