Congratulations to Beryl Harris – new review for her biography of Dame Cecily Pickerill

Marketing is a marathon not a race – our author Beryl Harris has a new review out for her biography of Dame Cecily Pickerill – a pioneering Wellington plastic surgeon.

Beryl Harris freely admits she is Dame Cecily Pickerill’s “one woman fan club”: “She was my first boss and went on to mentor me, and we remained friends until she died in 1988.”

In  Jan-Feb 2016 issue of ‘Heritage Today’ from Wellington Region Heritage Promotion Council,  read the  full review here.

    This is a great book and of particular interest to anyone who is from or lives in Upper Hutt. Also, families and former patients of Dame Cecily Pickeril – where ever they are in the world – will enjoy reading about the Pickerils’s, they’re pioneering surgery and how they came to be in Pinehaven and Lower Hutt. These people really made a difference to the world and the lives of numerous children.
