Well what a festival! I got to meet lots of local authors including Philip J Bradbury!
One of the highlights of the festival was meeting local legend, Dr Barry Jones; former Science Minister in the Hawke years and ex-quiz show champion. He has always been a person I have greatly admired.
I managed to overcome my nerves, approach him, and introduce myself.
Me: “Dr Jones, I’m a life long fan of your work.”
Him: “Well dear, there’s no reason to stop now.”
What a wit!
