From Paperboy to Peace Builder – An Evening with Tony Macaulay in Ballymena

From Paperboy to Peace Builder – An Evening with Tony Macaulay will be held in Ballymena at the Braid Town Hall. It will be held as part of Community Relations and Cultural Awareness Week 2016. If the name sounds familiar it is because we have blogged about Tony’s books – Paperboy, Breadboy and All Growed Up. If you have read any of his books you will know that he has a great sense of humour and great understanding of Northern Irish culture and politics. He grew up in Belfast and is a regular at book events in Waterstones.
