Balmain, NSW 2041 Australia

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Stuart Coupe in conversation with Simon Marnie

Shake Some Action tells the story of Stuart Coupe’s remarkable life as a music obsessive, one that started in Launceston, Tasmania, but would take him around the world and back, and into the orbit of some of the greatest artists of our time. It’s a book about fandom and burning to find the perfect words to pass that love on to others – and the myriad adventures, misadventures and personal costs that come with staying true.

Join Coupe on Thursday 10 August at The Royal Oak in conversation with the presenter of ABC Radio Sydney’s Weekend Mornings program, Simon Marnie.

Copies of Shake Some Action (out 8 August with Penguin) will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with Coupe signing copies after the discussion.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by ordering a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain’s oldest and most loved pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
