The following coverage re my upcoming in-store event for Goodbye Crackernight at Mary Ryan’s Books, Byron Bay, was printed in the Northern Star Weekender this last Saturday 6th of March – the Northern Star being one of the largest newspapers covering the Byron Bay area.  (Sydney friends, don’t be too confused re my new locale as published – I  have ‘dual’ residency at present…)

Crackers over Crackernight

By Candida Baker

ALSTONVILLE writer Justin Sheedy has good reason to be pleased.  His nostalgic, bitter-sweet memoir, Goodbye Crackernight, about growing up in 1970s Australia, published by Sid Harta, is winning lots of local praise.  Sheedy will be signing copies of his book and speaking in-store at Mary Ryan’s Books in Byron Bay on Friday, March 19, and Saturday, March 20, from 10am.  The book is the story of simpler times, when kids had second-hand bikes not Playstations, and before fireworks were banned.  Sheedy has had a varied career as a taxi driver, a go-go dancer, and a public servant.  He has an amazing recall of things such as the advent of colour TV, cinema matinees and hotpants.

Huge thanks to Candida Baker, Editor, Northern Star Weekender.

(NB: Re my career, my Fine Arts Degree only ‘qualified’ me to drive a cab.  I never pursued the vocation.  My loss.)
