Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival – Patting the Shark

Saturday, 13th May 2023 - 8:30am to 10:30am


Prostate cancer is now the most prevalent cancer in Australia yet many men are still reluctant to get tested, let alone discuss the impacts of a diagnosis. Bestselling surf writer Tim Baker was completely blindsided by an advanced prostate cancer diagnosis at the age of 50. Join him for this intimate, raw and candid discussion about his memoir Patting The Shark as he explains how conventional and complementary therapies have helped him stay fit, healthy and surfing his heart out.

Hosted by Barry Divola at the The Men’s Shed, Margaret River.   Ticket price includes a continental breakfast and a $5 donation to The Men’s Shed

Proudly supported by Voyager Estate
