Author event with Ben Doherty at Cessnock Library
Cessnock City Library is proud to present a free author event with former foreign correspondent and now journalist for The Guardian, Ben Doherty from 11am-12pm on Thursday 2 August.
Ben launched into the literary world with his enthralling debut novel, Nagaland, which is set in the far north-east of India.
Nagaland is an extraordinarily powerful and evocative literary work that traverses new ground in the hinterland between biography and mythology.
Library Services Co-ordinator, Rose-marie Walters said this is a fascinating event that is not to be missed.
“Ben is a three-time Walkley award winner for his foreign and immigration reporting and this event is a great opportunity to hear about his journey from journalist to novelist and the adventures in-between,” said Rose-marie.
This event is free to come along, but bookings are essential. Don’t miss out. Book your spot today by calling the team at Cessnock Library on 4993 4399.
Signed copies of Nagaland will also be available for sale at the event at a cost of $25 each.
