Local author and poet Mark O’Flynn is coming to Katoomba Library on Saturday 15th June, from 2pm.
Mark will be chatting about his latest book, False Start: A memoir of things best forgotten. This is a laugh-out-loud biography that recollects Mark’s journey to find his purpose in life. From being forced into work as a completely unqualified quarry sample tester, to trying his hand at acting, to an unsuccessful search for religion, Mark cheerfully describes his incredible adventures with a self-deprecating tone that encourages you to laugh along with him. As Diane Dempsey from the Sydney Morning Herald said, “That O’Flynn finally settled for a life of a writer seems to be an eminently sensible choice, given his nicely judged sense of humour and agile turn of phrase. And complete hopelessness at anything else.”
Come along to hear Mark speak, followed by afternoon tea. Our partners, Megalong Books, will be selling copies of the book on the day, and Mark will be available for book signing.
This is a free event, bookings are appreciated.
