Everyone who knew Graham Hannah, knew his laugh. The man who loved to generate fun events was noisy in other ways too. Frequently he thought out loud. When it came to thinking, visualising and developing potential, there was no off-switch.
In his memoir, What the Mind Can See, Graham Hannah reveals what went on centre stage and back as he pulled off decades of award-winning events including Hamilton’s highly visual International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta and Night Glow. Better known for giving the region the Waikato Home and Garden Show - now in it’s 35th year - Graham quested for elements that would surprise and delight.
Compiled by author Fiona Craig and published by Weaving the Strands, What the Mind Can See is available now at $45 a copy. Illustrated with lashings of photographs spanning the event-wizard’s life, What the Mind Can See offers an outrageous gaze into the outrageous life of a hard-out dreamer.
