Taking up residence in a decrepit billiards hall in a rural area of South Coast NSW, Darian Zam had no idea that it would take him on a six year long creative adventure full of fascinating characters in an old mining town where time had more or less stood still.

Come along to find out about Darian’s previous books and current project - ‘Crown Jewels’, a book about historical spots of interest along Crown Street, Wollongong, to be published in mid-2018.​

With next to no experience or training, Jeremy began a two and a half year, 51,916km bicycle ride that would see him cycle through twenty-nine countries from London to New Zealand.
 
This phenomenal journey was made possible thanks to the open-heart surgery which saved his life as a child. This is a story that will leave you feeling genuinely inspired, while Jeremy’s photos from the road will render you speechless.​

How do we make judgements about what is true?
 
We are surrounded by people with different opinions and it is not clear and obvious how we should engage with them in order to reach the “truth” or to most closely approximate it. Stephen Green’s new book; ‘The Coherent Past’, presents a practical framework or set of guidelines for making such judgements and demonstrates its applications.
Light refreshments will be served. The book will be available for purchase (cash only).
