Drew Bale – Book Launch

Thu April 23 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Mr Bale is well known in his local school at Orange but is keen to step onto the unknown with his first novel Following the Leader. The youth fiction book is a culmination of Drew’s love of reading, writing and sport.

About the book:

Dane is entering his final year of primary school education. He is an accomplished sportsman and is throwing his hat in the ring for a leadership opportunity.His world is turned upside down when he realises that he has the power to do so much more as a leader. Dane then had to make a choice: to do what is easy, or to do what is right. But doing what is right will create problems.

Dane will go on a journey that tests his understanding, his friendships and what he believes. He must grow or he will fail. Failure is not an option.

Celebrate Drew Bale’s first published book Following the Leader at Orange City Library on Thursday 23 April at 5.30pm. This event is supported by Collins Booksellers.
