The life of bushranger, Ben Hall
Blue Mountains City Library is pleased to be hosting author Trevor Shearston at Katoomba Library on Saturday 1st February, 2014.
Trevor will be sharing about his latest book, Game, a novel which presents a fresh and very human view of the legendary bushranger, Ben Hall, during his final days.
“The thought was coming more often. That wherever he was, he was at the centre of a cage. He couldn’t have said when the notion first entered his head. Some time in the last months. It was more now than a notion, he could see the damn bars. They were grey steel, the height of a man on horseback. In a dream he’d ridden out of a clump of boulders and caught them just before they retreated, how he knew what they looked like.”
This is a truly original perspective of the man, examining the hardships of life as a bushranger, as well as the longings of a father for his son. Join us to hear local author Trevor Shearston discuss his brilliant and moving literary novel. Trevor will also be entertaining his audience by singing some Ben Hall death ballads.
Afternoon tea is provided, as well as the opportunity to purchase copies of Game.
Bookings appreciated on 4780 5750 for this FREE event.
