You’re invited to enjoy an evening with award-winning Australian actor and author Peter Phelps at Maroochy RSL from 6pm on Thursday, August 2.

This special literary event is part of a series of Sunshine Coast Libraries author events hosted at various locations across the region.

Peter will talk about his latest book The Bulldog Track, as well as his life as an author and actor.

The Bulldog Track is a story about his grandfather Tom Phelps and the “other Kododa Track” – it’s a story that had never been told.

Seventy-five years later, Peter is sharing the unforgettable tale of resilience, survival and the indomitable Australian spirit.

Growing up, Peter listened to family stories about his grandfather’s incredible survival in New Guinea during WWII.

This book is a grandson’s story of an ordinary man’s war.

Peter is one of Australia’s best-loved actors, regularly appearing in film, television and theatre productions.

He is also an AFI and Logie award winner and has directed episodes of All Saints and Home and Away.

In 1994, Peter wrote the bestselling book Sex without Madonna: True Confessions of a Hired Gun in Tinseltown, a wry look at his years in Hollywood.

Peter’s books will be available for purchase at the venue.

Tickets are $25 per person and bookings are essential via council’s library website.

Peter will be joined by special guest, Mix FM radio personality Caroline Hutchinson.

Enjoy live music by talented local artist Jai Bevan, light refreshments are provided and cash bar is available from 6pm.
