Motueka Library: Author Talk – Tom Rowling

Wednesday 6th July 2022

Sharing his experiences of a bygone age, Captain Tom is a master storyteller as well as master mariner. His autobiography is a fascinating account of how a naïve young dreamer from a sheltered rural background copes with the hardships of life at sea in confined spaces with little privacy.

Luckily Tom’s a fast learner and quickly grows to love his chosen profession. His book covers the many ships on which he sailed and his adventures in bars and brothels around the world. From shy young boy he becomes a keen, often cheeky, and always enthusiastic young man.

Join us at this special talk to find out more about Tom's fascinating life.

Free. All welcome.

Books will be available to purchase @ $25 each.
