Often the process of writing a book can be as interesting as the book itself. This is the case with the author Greg de Moore and his book Tom Wills: His Spectacular Rise and Tragic Fall. Tom Wills, born 1835 was a cricketer, Australian Rules football hero and tragic alcoholic who stabbed himself to death in 1880. Join Greg de Moore at Hurstville City Library on May 26 Wednesday evening at 7pm to hear about his ten years of research that unearthed original material previously believed to be lost or destroyed. Greg is a consultant psychiatrist at Sydney’s Westmead Hospital, and his study of Will’s life stems from his interest in male suicide.
If you are interested in the process of writing and researching, the human condition or would just love to hear about a colourful, real life Australian character come along to this fascinating evening. Greg is one of the guest speakers at this years Sydney Writers Festival.
