Macquarie Regional Library manager John Bayliss said the author, adventurer and storyteller would be sharing his story.

“Coming up on September 18 author Jeremy Scott will give a talk about his book The Long Road from a Broken Heart. The book tells his life story, from undergoing life-saving, open-heart surgery at just four years of age to cycling 51,916km around the planet,” Mr Bayliss said.

“This talk will be held at the Dubbo Library from 6pm and there will be light refreshments and books available to purchase. It is free but bookings are essential.”

On October 5, 2011 Mr Scott set off to explore the world on his bike. It became a two-and-a-half-year adventure.

During the ride, and his work after it, Mr Scott raised more than $30,000 for the New Zealand, Australian and British Heart Foundations.

Following the event in Dubbo, Mr Scott will speak at Bathurst Library on September 20.

More information on the event is available at mrl.nsw.gov.au.
