I’m greatly looking forward to the launch of Mark O’Flynn’s short story collection, intriguingly titled, White Light. The launch is to be held at the funky Blue Mountains Youth Hostel in Katoomba. Mulled wine is promised, which will be just the thing on a cool Katoomba afternoon.
I’m also very interested to hear writer and critic Geordie Williamson, who is launching the book. I’ve long enjoyed Geordie’s erudite literary reviews. He was the winner of the Pascall Prize for criticism, Australia’s only major national prize awarded for critical writing. And he’s a Blue Mountains local, and an interesting writer, who recently published his fascinating, The Burning Library.
Mark O’Flynn is a prolific writer of novels, poetry and short stories, and has also recently published a novel, The Forgotten World, set in the Blue Mountains in 1800s.
Read an interview with Mark about his writing processes and inspiration on the Spineless Wonders Website at: http://shortaustralianstories.com.au/stoned-crow-mark-oflynn/ and view the book trailer at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuSVNoEOodw&feature=player_embedded
Should be a great event – see you there!
