30 May 2016 Soldier and Author Faces Interrogation at Library

Air Force serviceman and author Graham Potts will face an ‘interrogation’ by Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival Director Irina Dunn at Harry Bailey Memorial Library on June 9.

War has defined much of Graham Potts' adult life, but after challenging assignments with the Royal Australian Air Force, he discovered that writing is his true passion.

“Good stories come from asking lots of ‘what if’ questions and creating scenarios,” he says.“A writer finds the most interesting scenarios and stitches them together. But events don’t just happen – people make them happen, and it’s people, or characters, that allow a writer to engage the emotions of readers. Events aren’t interesting – people are.”

Graham’s action-packed style throws you into international conflicts closer to home than you think.

His novel ‘No Free Man’ is a fast-paced and gripping spy thriller that will hold you riveted until the last page.

"This is a spy thriller on a truly grand scale... an engrossing read, fast-paced and absorbing to the very end.”- Sydney Arts Guide.

Graham and Irina will be chatting at the Library on Thursday, June 9, from 6pm-8pm as part of this year’s Bellingen Reader’s and Writer’s Festival program.

Entry is free, but bookings are essential. Please book by calling 02 6648 4900 or via the Library Events Calendar
