Les Twentyman in conversation with Bruno Lettieri

Wild Dingo Press

Event Date: 14 November 2017
Author / Presenters: Les Twentyman/ Bruno Lettieri

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.

Bruno Lettieri is known for his conversations with Australia's most treasured writers in his series, Bruno Goes Everywhere. Lettieri has hosted Sofie Laguna, Helen Garner, Michael Leunig and the late John Clarke, among others.

Join Les Twentyman and Bruno Lettieri to discuss this extraordinary memoir, and the life behind it.
