Local author showcases new novel

Store manager, Mitchell Gordon, with author Peter J Fisher

Woy Woy Antiques & Collectables have brought stories to souvenirs with a book signing day on April 3 at their Deepwater Plaza stall.

Author Peter J Fisher showcased his new novel, Tales from the Rainforest: History and Heritage on the NSW Central Coast, at the signing, with copies of the book on sale for a discounted $35.

Store manager, Mitchell Gordon, said it was a successful day with over 30 people in attendance.

“The day went really well – we sold a lot of books,” Gordon said.

“There was a lot of interest from people about another event so we’re looking to put one on in the next month or so.”

Fisher’s 230-page book details the various rainforest patches and gullies found in the region, including their history and heritage.

Other topics in the book include the Henry Kendall engravings at West Gosford, plans to build Roman-inspired gardens next to Capper’s Gully at East Gosford, and the current working Patonga farm which stands on the site of an extinct volcano.
