Evening with Queensland Author John Ahern

On the Road... with the Kids' - One Family's Life-Changing Gap Year

Reception with John Ahern, author of ‘On the Road.. with the Kids’. Winner of Queensland Book of the Year 2015 from 6pm.

John Ahern had a good job, a big house, a loving wife and two great kids. But he felt he was somehow failing as a husband and father. Craving a great adventure to bring his family closer together, he sabotages his high-flying career, rents out the house and buys a battered old campervan online. The plan is to spend a year on the road… with kids. As they roll through 30 countries on an unpredictable, challenging and hilarious journey, John and his family find themselves mugged by monkeys, charmed by snake handlers and inspired by their fellow wanderers to create a life less ordinary. It’s a life-changing trip.
