Author Talk: James and Tania Park


This book is about how our fear affects your psyche and how to overcome those fears.”

It was James Park’s back injury and forced rest two decades ago, that led him to write about his childhood. James wrote down everything he could remember and with the assistance of his wife, Tania, the notes turned into a book, ‘The Only Way I Know’, published earlier this year.

The book tells James’ life story, starting with the traumatic memories of his childhood amongst his nine siblings in the shadow of his overpowering and often drunken drover father. Hard discipline, hard physical labour and the fear of punishment for slightest infraction of his father’s demands coloured his life. Against all odds he managed to overcome the legacy of his brutal childhood, started a family and became a successful businessman.

James and Tania Park will discuss the process of writing the book and James’ life story at the Geraldton Regional Library on Thu 10 November, 2011 at 12.00-13.30 and at Mullewa Library on Fri 11 November, 2011 at 12.00-13.30.
Please let us know if you'd like to attend by phoning 9956 6659.

The book is available for sale for $20 in both locations.
