Holden Sheppard – Meet the Author Event (Ages 12+)
October 28, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join award-winning local author Holden Sheppard as he discusses his multi-award-winning book Invisible Boys, which recently took out this year’s WA Premier’s Prize for an Emerging Writer.
This debut novel centres on a group of very different teenage boys growing up gay in Geraldton.
Holden will share his very personal impetus for writing the novel, and talk about his own journey from being a manual labourer to becoming a published author and his struggle for self-acceptance as a gay man in light of various challenges growing up.
With Invisible Boys recently optioned for film and TV production, Holden will also talk about his hopes for the screen adaptation.
Book sales and signing will be available at the event.
Stay and enjoy some free pizza after the event.
Physical distancing will be maintained during this event and hand sanitiser will be provided. If you are unwell please stay at home.
