Book launch – Barry Dickins: Lessons in Humility, 40 Years of Teaching

Connor Court Publishing invites you to the launch of Lessons in Humility,

40 Years of Teaching


by Barry Dickins


“Lessons in Humility is the bizarre story of Barry Dickins’ life as a teacher.


He gained his Diploma Of Education at The Melbourne State College forty years ago although he failed Classroom Management. He has taught Drama and Creative Literature to cherubs at a primary school and prayer-composition at a secondary college.


The recollection unfolds at the point of doom but cheerfully expands when the author experiences enlightenment when he is put in with Grade Ones forever.


Barry Dickins’ writing has been called ‘The defeat of the desperate by the bizarre’ which means of course that his stage characters are inevitably overcome by not themselves but their surroundings.


Join the catastrophic but noble hunt for meaning as our indefatigable community-loving teacher collides with life head-on.”
