An author talk with a difference is coming to Lithgow Library on 4 July 2018 at 11am. ‘The long road from a broken heart’, tells the story of Jeremy Scott as he undertook a bicycle ride from London to New Zealand.
“Jeremy’s story is an inspiring story of strength and courage. This visit is a great opportunity for the community to engage with Jeremy and enjoy what I’m sure will be an inspirational and entertaining presentation,” said Mayor Stephen Lesslie.
Undergoing major open heart surgery as a four-year-old child taught Jeremy that life was precious and something to cherish. He began to see life as a rollercoaster ride, filled with challenges and experiences. Some of those challenges were forced upon him; others were of his own design.
On 5 October 2011, Jeremy began a challenge that was of his own design, a journey that was many years in the planning; a 2 ½ year, 51,916km unsupported bicycle ride from London to New Zealand. As he pedalled his way around the planet he accumulated more than enough kilometers to circumnavigate the earth.
At the conclusion of this phenomenal journey, Jeremy wrote the highly successful book ‘The Long Road From a Broken Heart’ and now dedicates his life to inspiring others.
Jeremy is a recipient of the Australian Heart Foundation ‘Heart Hero Award’ and an Ambassador for Waterline Challenge.
The author talk will take place at Lithgow Library on Wednesday 4 July 2018 at 11am and will be followed by light refreshments. No bookings are required for this free event.
