Salisbury Writers' Festival - October 2007


Are you looking for a stimulating Friday night out? Does the mention of a Holden FX or FJ bring back memories? Would you like to hear stories about the people who made the first Holden cars? Do you enjoy interesting conversation?

The City of Salisbury, the SA Writers' Centre and ALIA SIP invite you to an evening that combines it all.


Social event - Free entry
October - Friday 5th
Opening Night of the Salisbury Writers' Festival 2007
Speaker: Don Loffler, author of She's a beauty! The story of the first Holdens.
7 pm - 9 pm, John Harvey Gallery, 12 James Street, Salisbury
Please RSVP on 8406 8368

To date, Don has written this and two other books on the early Holden vehicles: Still Holden together and The FJ Holden. As a testament to his research and writing skills, Don received the following message from a woman: "I thought my husband was sick. In all our years of marriage I've never seen him read a book. But with yours I couldn't get him off the sofa."


The event is part of the Salisbury Writers’ Festival 2007: Friday 5th - Friday 19th October 2007
organised by the Salisbury Council, the Salisbury Library and the SA Writers’ Centre.
