THURSDAY, 16 MARCH, 6.00PM, ALL SAINTS ANGLICAN CHURCH, HAMILTON ROAD, CHERMSIDE, BRISBANE
You will meet Rebecca Levingston of ABC Radio who will MC the evening.
Also Wayne Swan, Greg Cary, Paul Scarr, Anthony Lynham & Shayne Neumann who will comment on my latest book
CATCHING THE LINVILLE TRAIN
The function is a fundraiser for ACTS, the community service arm of the Aspley Uniting Church, which makes direct cash grants to people in crisis situations. Last year, we shared 77,000 dollars to the bank accounts of more than 100 people who were in significant trouble.
For a modest 25 dollars per person you enjoy a great evening and some excellent drinks and savouries, most of which have been donated by generous supporters of ACTS.
A signed copy of my book is available for 25 dollars. All royalties on book sales at the launch go to ACTS.
And you can make a tax deductible gift to ACTS if you choose to do so.
In addition, we will all enjoy the company of many fine people who have already signed up to attend.
My book is not my autobiography. I wrote that a decade ago.
CATCHING THE LINVILLE TRAIN is all about the world that opened up to me following my first train journey from the tiny village of Linville to the world 85 years ago when I was just 6 years old. There are 81 short chapters about the great national and international events of my era, influential people I worked with, historic places that impacted on my thinking, nostalgia about books cinema theatre and a humble analysis of five important things I feel that I achieved in my life. Finally, I return to Linville and look at where our world is heading.
There are many of my 17000 friends on Twitter and Facebook whom I have not yet had the privilege of meeting so this book launch is a time when I hope to say hello to you.
If you would like to catch up, send me a direct message on Twitter or Facebook and I will make contact.
In the meantime, you will note that I am already at work signing books. I am delighted that so many have been ordered in advance.
