Barry Heard is a gifted memoir writer. He discovered writing unexpectedly in 1997, whilst a patient in the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital for Veterans in Melbourne. It was here that a staff member encouraged him to write his story. he was reluctant at first, until he found that writing was therapeutic.
The resulting book, “Well Done, Those Men’, was published and made famous almost a decade later. It won the 2012 National Year of Reading “Our story” competition.
We welcome Barry to Geelong to host two fascinating author talks in partnership with the State Library of Victoria’s High Road to Reading program.
