Authors Share Adventure of a Lifetime
Mona Vale Library will host co-authors Linda Benton and David Rule who share their amazing journey through 22 countries in their recently published adventure journal Two Feet Forward on Thursday 5 July.
Linda Benton and David Rule were both made redundant at the time of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). Meeting through a mutual friend, they soon realised they had both shared a desire to travel and used the GFC as an opportunity to live their wildest dreams.
They took a leap of faith, packed up their lives and set off for a journey that covered 22 countries over nine months.
Events Librarian Catherine Buddin said their book is a visual adventure, taking the reader on a journey of fun and sharing a light-hearted love story in rare and picturesque locations.
“The book is beautifully presented and captures recipes, memories, budgeting tips and stunning photography,” said Ms Buddin.
David Rule has a background in finance and has returned to his career managing sales, marketing and events for Two Feet Forward. Linda Benton has a background in graphic design which she has drawn on to produce this visually engaging book.
As well as being a travelogue, the book also provides inspiration on how to manage a dramatic shift in life plans such as the sudden redundancy experienced by the two authors.
The talk will be held on Thursday 5 July from 6.30pm to 8pm at Mona Vale Library. Mona Vale Library is located at 1 Park Street, Mona Vale.
Bookings are essential; to book phone 9970 1600. Following the talk there will be book signings and light refreshments. Admission is $8 adult, $6 concession.
