Willy Lit Fest

Event Date: 18 June 2017
Author / Presenters: Lew Twentyman, Robert Hillman

He has a big mouth and a huge heart and Les Twentyman uses them both in his lifelong quest to help disadvantaged youth. Les talks to Robert Hillman about their upcoming book, The Mouth That Roared, which goes behind the public knowledge to find out what makes one of Australia’s living treasures tick.

Award-winning writer, Robert Hillman, has collaborated with one of Australia’s best-known youth outreach workers and social campaigners, to bring his story to the public in that wonderful storytelling style that Robert and Les share. In this memoir, Robert goes behind the public knowledge to find out what makes Les tick, where he came from, who and what made him Australia’s number one advocate for our most vulnerable young people. And what of his private life, if he has one at all?

Take a journey with one of Australia’s living treasures to the ugliest side – and to the best – of life as Robert chats with Les at Willy Lit Fest 2017.
