Toowong Library hosts John Hickman
Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has announced Toowong Library will host local author John Hickman on Wednesday, 13 March when the writer discusses his ‘warts and all’ tribute to his father in the book ‘Reluctant Hero’.
Local Councillor Peter Matic (Toowong Ward) said the event was part of the Lord Mayor’s commitment to bring high-profile authors to Brisbane.
“We want Brisbane to be a smart and prosperous city, and author talks help us achieve this by providing avenues for our readers and writers to be entertained and inspired,” Cr Matic said.
“Last year council libraries hosted 85 author events and book signings across the city, and because they’ve been so popular there will be many more similar events to come this year.
“I encourage John’s fans to join him and get a unique insight into the true story behind ‘Reluctant Hero’, based on John’s father’s involvement in World War II and his journey from boyhood to air-combat veteran in less than a year.”
For more information about John Hickman’s appearance, visit www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/libraries or phone (07) 3403 8888.
Books will be available for purchase or fans can bring their own copy from home for signing.
