The Gardens of Stone and Beyond, Book 9 Launch

Sat 25 November at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Bushexplorers return to Lithgow Library
The ever-popular trio of Brian Fox, Yuri Bolotin and Michael Keats, aka the Bushexplorers, are returning to Lithgow Library for an author talk event to launch their new book “The Gardens of Stone and Beyond, Book 9”. Book 9 is the final book in the epic Gardens of Stone series.
With over 3,200 bushwalks behind this talented trio, this new book takes you on adventure after adventure exploring hidden gems. Brian, Yuri and Michael have claimed that “The Garden of Stone and Beyond” series is their favourite of all their books. Book 9 is a culmination of 14 years of work and features 30 exceptional, not previously published bushwalks across the entire Gardens of Stone area, as well as the history of the political campaigning to preserve this unique landscape for future generations.
The Bushexplorers talks are always entertaining and the book itself is sure to be a remarkable read. If you have an interest in bushwalking or the Gardens of Stone area, then this talk is a must for you. Books will be available to purchase from the authors on the day, including books across their entire catalogue.
Light refreshments will be available from 10.00am with the launch to start at 10.30am. Due to popularity please RSVP to yuri@bigci.org.
