Meet “The Boy From the Mish” author Gary Lonesborough during an afternoon of fun hosted at Jigamy Farm by One Book One Community on June 19 from 2pm to 4pm. Young novelist Bega will discuss his book in conversation with Twofold Aboriginal Corporation’s Cultural Inclusion Officer, Alison Simpson. The event will also include a traditional dance by Duurunu Miru, as well as performances by students from Eden Marine High. “The Boy From The Mish” is a young adult novel that addresses issues that many young people face, such as difference, sexuality, loneliness, and growing up in a country town. The novel has been widely acclaimed since Mr. Lonesborough’s book launch in Bega earlier this year, and he has since signed the rights to see his book published in the United States, Canada and Mexico. “I wrote this book for people like me. I hope they read it and know that they are not alone,” Mr Lonesborough said. “Plus, for other writers in small towns, it says ‘you can make your dreams come true.’ If I can do it, anyone can do it.” Afternoon tea will be offered and coffee will be available for purchase from a coffee cart. Bring your warm clothes as part of the afternoon is outside and the room is large and difficult to heat. Online registrations are free but necessary before attending the event.
