In his new book, The Opera House, bestselling author and household name Peter FitzSimons tells the extraordinary story of the building that symbolises Australia, capturing the people, the secrets, the scandals and the sheer genius.

On Wednesday 20 April at a Roaring Stories Bookshop event, join FitzSimons in conversation with popular presenter and ABC TV satirist Mark Humphries, in what’s sure to be an evening of riveting storytelling, fascinating insight and great conversation at White Bay Beer Company, the only microbrewery on the Balmain peninsula.

Tickets will sell out fast, so be sure to book quick!

Doors open at 6pm, and attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm or earlier for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot! The bar opens 6pm and closes at 9.30pm on the night of the event, making for an opportune time to settle in and grab a drink before or after, with an incredible range of locally brewed beers and other beverages to enjoy.

There’ll be plenty of delicious food available too thanks to special event caterer Mr. PIG food truck, so why not make a full evening of it and come for dinner too?

The Opera House will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from FitzSimons following the discussion.

For those who can’t make it in person, the event will be livestreamed from Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab), and available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
