Hip young author to visit the library
  • Tuesday 12 August 2008

When thinking of an author, an image of an old, grey-haired man sitting in front of a typewriter in a dusty room may come to mind. This is definitely not the case with Tristan Bancks; the young and innovative author of Mac Slater: Cool Hunter.

What’s unique about Tristan is that with his film background (he acted on Home and Away and has produced several short films, which have been exhibited at festivals around the world) he explores multimedia for his literary expression too. He has a trailer for his book on You Tube and plans to have future books in the series with elements on the net as well as in print.

What: To coincide with Book Week (16 to 22 August), Tristan will entertain school children from Ananda Marga River School, Glasshouse Country Christian College and Kawana Waters Community College with stories about his experiences as an author and writing his new book.

Where: Maleny Library at 9am
Beerwah Library at 11am
Kawana Library at 1pm

The sessions are for school children.
