We are very lucky to have Grant Lock, author of the books ‘Shoot me First’ and ‘I’d rather be blind’, and his wife, Janna speak at the library.
When: Monday 18 August 2020
Time: 7:00pm – (approx)8:00pm plus question time.
Where: Jamestown School Community Library
A brief introduction and some information on what to expect on Monday night:
What does it take for an Australian businessman, and Janna, his gutsy wife, to leave a successful cattle breeding business and spend 24 years in the hot spots of The Islamic Republics of Pakistan and Afghanistan? And why did he call his first eyeopening book “Shoot Me first? And how does Grant, the Director of Afghanistan’s biggest eye-care programme, handle the news that he himself is going blind Grant and Janna have spent 24 years living and working in Afghanistan and Pakistan. You are invited to come and hear them share their personal stories. They will answer your questions about a region that has consumed so much of the world’s aid dollars and military man-power. Janna will share her passion for empowering Afghan widows. Some of their exquisite embroidery will be available for display and purchase and Grant will sign copies of “Shoot Me First,” and his brilliant new book, “I’d Rather Be Blind.” He will also perform some of his popular prose poetry.
