Event description

Description

Todd and Jeff have had enough of the city. Sick of the daily grind and workaday corporate shenanigans, they throw caution to the wind and buy 100 acres in the renowned Hunter Valley wine region, intent on living a golden bucolic life and building a fabulous B&B, where they can offer the joys of country life to heart-weary souls. Todd will cook, Jeff will renovate. They have a vineyard, they can make wine. They have space, they can grow their own food. They have everything they need to make their dreams come true. How hard can it be?

Todd Alexander has written a not-so-perfect tree change memoir called Thirty Thousand Bottles of Wine and a Pig called Helga. Sharply observed, funny and poignant, this is a hilarious account of two unprepared city slickers who turn their hands to the land and discover much more than they bargained for. Join Todd as he shares his experiences and discusses his new book.

Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Todd to sign.

This event is presented as part of the Lord Mayor’s Writers in Residence series.
