Double Book Launch

Aug 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Presented by: George & Joan Bryant

You are invited to a double book launch!

Authors George and Joan Bryant present the launches of their books, LIFE IS… and Free To Be Me, respectively.

What’s life on earth really like? Who are we? What are we doing here? What are our idols? What does the future hold? And much more! George Bryant reflects on many aspects of living on this planet.

“LIFE IS… will speak to a wide range of readers, for it observes trends in our world with common sense and insight.” Dr Peter Lineham, Massey University

“In his own inimitable style George Bryant asks the simple but profound questions which explore what it means to be human.” Roger Moses, Wellington College

“The story of one man’s pilgrimage in search of meaning, justice and peace. It’s challenging, thoughtful, even provocative, and full of wisdom.” Very Rev Ray Cost, NZ Presbyterian Church


When: Friday 14 August, 5pm – 7:30pm
Where: Daniels-in-the-Park, 53 Eleventh Ave, Tauranga
Guests: Songs from Harmony A’ Plenty, barbershop group
