Award-winning author Barry Heard will visit High Country Library branches in Benalla, Wangaratta, Mt Beauty and Bright during October to talk about his book, Well Done, Those Men.
Benalla Library will host Barry, a Vietnam veteran, at the Commercial Hotel in Benalla.
Barry’s visit is part of the National Year of Reading program and his book, Well Done, Those Men, is a memoir of his experiences during, and after, the Vietnam War.
It has been named as the Victorian winner of the Our Story competition.
The aim of the Our Story competition was to identify a set of eight books which together describe what it’s like to live in, be from, visit or in some other way connect with the eight different states and territories.
Barry was born and raised in rural Victoria. He started writing his story while being treated for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Reviews of the book have been outstanding, both from veterans and those who are interested in the long-term effects of a war experience.
You can meet Barry at the Commercial Hotel, Bridge St, Benalla, at 10
The Friends of the Benalla Library will provide morning tea; all other drinks and meals will be at bar prices. Book through Benalla Library on 5762
