COMING BACK: Wagga-born author Tim Harris, who created the Exploding Endings series of books, will be a special guest at Wagga Lutheran Primary School's sustainable living festival.

Popular Wagga-born children’s author Tim Harris will be a special guest at a festival in the city.

Mr Harris, the author of the Exploding Endings series, will hold a writing workshop, as well as signing copies of his book, Mr Bambuckle’s Remarkables at the Wagga Lutheran Primary School’s sustainable living festival.

“I am really looking to returning to Wagga for this important festival,” the former primary school teacher said.

“I wrote my first version of Exploding Endings in 2012. I wrote it for a class I was teaching at the time. It was so much fun that I haven’t stopped writing since.

I was very lucky to have the first book in Exploding Endings published in 2015. I’m now up to the fourth book in the series,” the father-of-three said.

This year’s sustainable living festival is themed “healthy you, healthy family, healthy life” and will feature 50 green market stalls, 25 school stalls and sustainable workshops, as well as musical performances and a silent auction.

The festival will be held in the grounds of the Red Hill Road school on October 14 from 10am to 3pm.
