Pageturners Read Freeing Peter

freeing-peter

When Australian journalist Peter Greste was jailed in Egypt in 2013 on spurious charges his family swung into action and mounted a campaign to free him. With parents Lois and Juris leading the battle in Australia, brothers Andrew and Michael took it in turns to be in Cairo and offer support.  Now, the family has shared their experience in a new book, Freeing Peter, and how it not only galvanised them but also forced them to confront the fact they each had different ideas on how to help. Pageturners Book Discussion Group will be talking about this book on Wednesday 9th November at 5.30pm at Orange City Library. All interested people are most welcome to attend.
