Father’s Day giveaway thanks to our friends at Fremantle Press
Between them, these local Fremantle Press authors have done everything from panning for gold in the jungles of Laos, to being named a WA Living Treasure. With Father’s Day around the corner, we asked these local dads what their typical Father’s Day entails.
For Jim Richards, Father’s Day means having to eat burnt pancakes with vegemite, David Whish-Wilson enjoys half spilt tea as part of his breakfast in bed. “I read a book in the afternoon, and then if the dog isn’t barking too loudly I’ll enjoy a siesta. Heaven!” he says. Dave Warner says he’s looking forward to the annual 6-pack of beer his family buys him and re-reading Catch-22, while Alan Carter said he had Mark Brandi’s Wimmera, Kim Scott’s Taboo & Jock Serong’s On the Java Ridge all awaiting his attention.
And where do these dads most like to read? Robert Edeson says, “For me, my home study, in a comfortable old chair, with reference books, internet, and pen and paper to hand.” Alan Carter likes to be “flat out on the couch with the sun streaming through the window!” Dave Warner likes it “anywhere in the cool shadows of a hot afternoon”, while Jim Richards likes to read about the place he’s visiting.
Fremantle Press is giving away Bad to Worse by Robert Edeson, Before It Breaks by Dave Warner, Derby by David Whish-Wilson and Sean Gorman, Gold Rush by Jim Richards and Marlborough Man by Alan Carter plus a bunch more, worth over $250! Look for the How to Enter details on this page.
