Join author David Scott for launch of his autobiography, Stargazer. Stargazer provides a rich account of life from World War II through to the present day. David Scott candidly recounts the innocent years of a naive boy growing up in rural Australia, devastating events at Scotch College and the untimely death of his father. At age seventeen he takes on the management of the family cinemas and drive-in theatres: a career spanning forty years, which included memorable times with Mike Walsh, Jeannie Little, Simon Gallagher and other stars of Australian television. After selling his theatre interests, David established a thoroughbred horse stud. A near-death experience altered his perspective and future; a change in direction saw him becoming an acclaimed playwright, director, and then novelist. David reveals a life well lived – overcoming challenges, embracing simplicity and finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. It is a riches to rags story told with humour and pathos. Free. Morning tea provided. For more information contact Coonabarabran Library on 6842 1093.
