Christmas Book Signing for Justin Sheedy’s Latest: “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer”
Sydney author, Justin Sheedy, is delighted to see his fourth and latest book, “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer”, published in time for Christmas 2014. “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer”, Sheedy’s 1980s rock & roll memoir of teenage under the threat of nuclear annihilation before he ever kissed a girl, is the long-awaited sequel to “Goodbye Crackernight”, his warmly-received comic memoir of childhood in 1970s Australia – when child’s proudest possession was not a smart phone but a 2nd-hand bike. Sheedy will be signing copies of “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer” at Dymocks Chatswood on the last Saturday shopping day before Christmas, Saturday 20 December all day from 10am.
