Join Dalby Library for a taste of the Antarctic with author Zane Hacker

29 May 2015

Enjoy a unique taste of the world’s final frontier, the Antarctic, with author and chef Zane Hacker, when he drops by the Dalby Library with his new book Antarctic Sundays on Monday 15 June.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development and Health Services Councillor Carolyn Tillman said readers, travellers and food lovers will be captivated by Zane’s tales of living and working at Mawson Station in one of the coldest and most isolated places on earth.

“Antarctic Sundays is a memoir, travel and cook book all rolled into one extraordinary visual wonder of what it’s like to overcome both physical and psychological challenges in extreme conditions,” she said.

“Zane’s book offers to take readers to places most only dream about. It is a snapshot of where the world can take you in the space of a year with accounts of breathtaking scenery, wildlife, and being a young chef living in a remote and isolated community.

“Libraries are happy to bring Zane and his modern day tale of adventure in one of the wildest places on earth to our community.

“It’s always a joy to meet an author inperson, so I encourage residents to come along and share in an enjoyable afternoon of captivating tales and wonder.”

Zane Hacker will be speaking at Dalby Library on Monday 15 June at 3.30pm.

Entry is free with refreshments included but bookings are essential.
