Peter FitzSimons entertains with Storytelling

More than 70 guests were entertained by yarn after yarn told by author and journalist Peter FitzSimons on Wednesday night. He was launching his new book A Simpler Time but spoke on a wide range of topics including Orange Emus, growing up on Sydney's outskirts, his family, why he now wears a bandana and how marrying Lisa (TODAY Show Host) meant he was a legend for “blokes punching above their weight”. The event was just in time for Father's Day and many people took the opportunity to purchase a book and have it signed as a special gift. The library's Peter Douglass is puctured getting a book signed by Peter FitzSimons. The event was supported by Angus & Robertson Bookstore.
