Author / Presenters: 
Les Twentyman

Les Twentyman has devoted his life to young people doing it tough. For decades, Les has toiled to give lifelines of support to Australia's most vulnerable and voiceless. A youth-worker for Sunshine Council, then Brimbank Council and later, Father Bob Maguire's Open Family, Les became a legend; the friend of battlers but also of those who've made fortunes and wish to give something back to the community. In the last 26 years, the Les Twentyman Foundation has helped 17,000 former youth at risk through school, and 500 through university.

'The Mouth That Roared' is the story of an ordinary bloke who has made an extraordinary difference to the lives of the disenfranchised, the abandoned and the forgotten.

Join Les at the Sam Merrifield library to talk about the extraordinary life behind his memoir, 'The Mouth That Roared'.
