Musician, screenwriter and award-winning author Dave Warner brings his Never a Dull Moment tour to the City of Gosnells, for an afternoon of anecdotes about his creative life.
At a special author talk event at the Mills Park Centre on Monday 19 September, Warner will reflect on his music, crime writing and love of football, and read excerpts from his new novel, After the Flood.
Mayor Terresa Lynes said Warner’s career had taken many twists and turns since the release of his best-selling single Suburban Boy in 1978, and he had achieved success in a number of fields along the way.
“Bob Dylan once described Dave Warner as his favourite Australian music artist, and I am looking forward to learning more about how he has adapted his career over the years to gain new generations of fans,” she said.
In a career spanning over 50 years, Warner has released 11 crime novels, a series of children’s books, has written for film and television and called the AFL on Sydney radio.
Warner won the Best Fiction award at the WA Premier’s Book Awards in 1996, for City of Light, and the Ned Kelly Award for Best Australian Crime Novel in 2016, for Before it Breaks.
Warner’s most recent book, After the Flood, is set in Broome and is the latest in the award-winning Dan Clement series. Copies of the novel will be available for sale and can be signed by Warner on the day.
The Never a Dull Moment author event is at Mills Park Centre, 86 Brixton Street, Beckenham, from 1pm to 2.30pm on Monday 19 September. Bookings are essential.
