Talks@Willoughby presents William McInnes, speaking about his book: Full Bore

24 October 2016

Chatswood Library on The Concourse 
Lower Ground, 409 Victoria Avenue, Chatswood
FREE event
Award-winning writer and actor, William McInnes returns to Chatswood Library to speak about his latest book, Full Bore this November. 
A chance encounter in an auction house is the jumping off point for William's inimitable take on our sport-obsessed nation, Australian popular culture and the artifacts and memorabilia that both make us cringe with recognition and laugh with warm affection. 
William McInnes has delighted readers with his memoirs A Man’s Got to Have a Hobby and That’d be Right, his novels Cricket Kings and The Birdwatcher, and his insight into Australian life with The Making of Modern Australia. In 2011, with his wife Sarah Watt, he co-wrote Worse Things Happen at Sea, which was named the best non-fiction title in the ABIA and the Indie Awards in 2012. In 2014, he wrote Holidays, his unique perspective on the Australian obsession with taking a hard-earned break.
William has won two Logies and an AFI Award for Best Actor for his role in the film Unfinished Sky. He received critical acclaim for his leading role in the film Look Both Ways and recently starred in the ABC television series The Time of Our Lives, and featured in the SBS drama series Deep Water.
Lindfield Bookshop will provide copies of the book for sale and signing on the day.
