Lo­cal man launches book

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

LO­CAL man Bruce Har­grave will be show­ing off his new book, The Chef Shot Through, to the com­mu­nity on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 15 2.00pm at the Euroa Li­brary.

The book com­prises fif­teen songs which he will present with gui­tar ac­com­pa­ni­ment on the day.

Each of the songs through­out the book is ac­com­pa­nied by Bruce’s own il­lus­tra­tions, cre­ated with his wa­ter colour paint­ings.

The con­cert style pre­sen­ta­tion takes a lit­tle over an hour and the songs vary greatly in con­tent from se­ri­ous to not se­ri­ous.

A num­ber of songs are lo­cally mo­ti­vated, ref­er­enc­ing Creightons Creek, Strath­bo­gie and Dookie.

Mr Har­grave has said the in­spi­ra­tion for my songs and po­ems springs from the ob­ser­va­tion of ev­ery­day in­ci­dents, con­nect­ing with love, an- noy­ance, quirk­i­ness and nearly al­ways hu­mour.

“The pas­sion to ex­press these feel­ings is of­ten bub­bling near the sur­face and takes great de­light in their ex­pres­sion through al­lit­er­a­tion, rhyme and the ar­range­ment of words,” he said.

“The Chef Shot Through” will be avail­able for $14.95 with a quar­ter of all sales go­ing to Euroa Health.
