In his only regional Victorian appearance, Word for Word Festival and Geelong Regional Libraries proudly present an exclusive evening with acclaimed West Australian author Tim Winton as he delivers a powerful meditation on lost boys and the riptide of toxic masculinity. With a specially commissioned soundscape and stunning photographic interludes this is an hour long event exploring the declarations and fraught silences that mark the journey to adulthood for so many young men. Join us for a very special experience as the pre-eminent novelist of his generation brings words, images and sounds to the discussion of our most bewildering and desolate landscape – contemporary manhood. Bookings are essential.

Tickets: $45 includes one signed copy of The Shepherd’s Hut. Friends of the Library will be entitled to reserved seating at this event.
