If you’re in the area of or surrounds of Forster, New South Wales you are in for a treat!
G. J. Maher, author of Moon Over the Mediterranean is going to be giving an author talk at Forster Library on August 20, 2018!
Moon Over the Mediterranean has been a phenomenal hit with copies being loved and read all over Australia and Europe – it tells the fascinating story of Alexander, a conscientious objector in 1960s Holland. He embarks on a lifetime adventure, travelling the hippie trail through Greece, India, Nepal, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and beyond. Keeping his sketch pad at hand he always has a good book to enjoy and engages in deep philosophical discussions with fellow travellers, as well as falling in and out of love along the way. As he matures, Alexander becomes more involved with the world around him, helping displaced persons, building clinics, schools and rehabilitation centres, assisting children who have been abducted as child soldiers and abused in horrifying ways. Finally, he embarks on several monumental projects where he attempts to change the way people think towards bigotry and asylum seekers. Moon over the Mediterranean is a feel-good book despite the difficult issues it confronts. It tells the story of one man’s struggle to make the world a better place and live a compassionate life.
