Please see the attached flyer. This flyer show the detail of our upcoming Peter FitzSimons' Lunch in May. It will be a great event. Don't miss out.

Regarded as one of Australia's most popular historians Peter has published with Harper Collins and Random House to deliver the epic stories of Tobruk, Kokoda, Mawson and Batavia to name a few - his latest being Gallipoli. Understanding the importance of being a team, and the significance of mate-ship, Peter FitzSimons brings his characters to life and writes our history with a warmth and humanity that brings it home.

There is another story that underlies Peter's visit to Cairns, and that is the unique opportunity for Tropical Writers Inc, who produce the Cairns Tropical Writers Festival biennially, to support Townsville's Savannah - Voices in the North Festival.

These two literary Festivals will run biennially and support each other to provide networking platforms and opportunities to enhance the profile of regional writing and writers from North Queensland.

Don't miss this opportunity to meet one of Australia's most popular historians and enigmatic speakers - and support the partnership between the two major literary Festivals in our North Queensland region.

Venue: Donnini's in the Hilton, 34 Esplanade, Cairns City
Time: 12pm
Date: Thursday, May 21, 2015
Ticket Price: $60pp.

This will be our update section. Please come back regularly to see what’s happening.
