Ken Piesse: Heroes of the hour

Monday 29 January 2018

Melbourne-based author, commentator and master speaker Ken Piesse will visit Elmore Library Agency and Bendigo Library to speak about his new book Heroes of the Hour. Ken has written, edited and published more than 70 sports books with a special interest in cricket and Australian Rules football. ­

Released in November, Heroes of the Hour focuses on cricket’s quintessential moments from Bradman and Warnie to Gilly and Warner.

Cricket is famous for producing the extraordinary and the unforgettable. We never tire of celebrating our legendary cricket heroes – their greatest triumph, their greatest day.

Experience the finest moments of all with cricket’s master storyteller Ken Piesse.

“We really encourage past and present cricketers and any with a love of the game to come along with seniors being especially welcome” said Tammy Higgs, Coordinator of Programs at Goldfields Libraries.

Ken Piesse will speak at Elmore Library Agency on Friday 23 February from 11am-12pm and at Bendigo Library from 5.30-6.30pm.

Both sessions are free and book sales and signings will be available.
