Local children’s author Tristan Bancks launched his new book at the Bangalow Public School last week with a presentation to years three through to six.
Entitled The Fall, the crime-mystery novel is suitable for readers ten and up.
Bancks says, ‘The book deals with themes of morality, mortality, father–son relationships and male rites of passage. It involves a twelve-turning-thirteen-year-old boy, Sam Garner, who witnesses a crime through the rear window of his father’s apartment.’
The Bangalow launch kicks off a tour from June till August, and Bancks says he will visit schools, libraries and festivals in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Orange, Geelong and Perth, attend Byron Writers Festival and visit local schools on the StoryBoard Bus.
