Saturday Seminar Report – A Wordsmith’s Way

A Wordsmith’s Way – Presented by Barry Smith      


Thirty-two members and others were entertained by Barry’s recollection of a five-month long circumnavigation of Australia by Subaru Forester, highlighted by his on and off-road experiences in the far north. A portfolio of photographs accompanied the talk.

Crocodiles, flooded river crossings and bulldust galore interspersed with time spent completing the third of an Australian dynastic trilogy of adventure novels which span the First, Second and a potential Third World War.

Barry’s easygoing style made for an entertaining afternoon, re-igniting this writer’s desire to see more of our country. A great deal of interest was also shown in his self-published novels.
