Game

Good Reading Reviews Game by Trevor Shearston

Great review of Trevor Shearston’s book Game in the latest edition of Good Reading.  It starts off ” Bushrangers were never a terribly subtle lot, but Trevor Shearston’s novel about Ben Hall and his gang catches the haunting beauty of the bush as well as the life of men who did not reveal the depths of their feelings.”  Trevor Shearston will be at Forbes Library at 12.30pm and Orange City Library at 5.30pm on Friday 16th August. Everyone is welcome to attend. Go to Good Reading online to read the review on p35 http://www.cwl.nsw.gov.au/infohome/good-reading/
