Author Talk: Anthony Macris
Wednesday, 16 May 2012 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EST)
Sydney, New South Wales
UTS Library is hosting a series of FREE author talks throughout the month of May as part of the continuing National Year of Reading celebrations.
The third talk will be presented by Dr Anthony Macris author of When Horse Became Saw. Anthony will be reading an excerpt from his book and talking about the road to becoming an author and producing award winning literature.
About the book:
When Anthony Macris' son was diagnosed with autism, he and his partner Kathy had two choices - do what they were told, and could afford, or do what they thought best.
This is the tragic, joyful, instructive story of how Anthony and Kathy took control of the therapy themselves, turning their lives upside down to do so. It took a long time, but the radiance did return to Alex's face. By then he was a completely different person, and so were his parents.
Dr Anthony Macris is an Associate Professor in Creative Writing in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. His most recent book, When Horse Became Saw: a Family's Journey through Autism, was shortlisted for the Age Book of the Year in 2011.
When Horse Became Saw will be available for sale at the talk and Anthony will be signing copies of his book.
This is a free event.
All are welcome.
Bookings are required for non-UTS attendees.
