I am enjoying reading John Cann’s book. I would love to be able to contact him and tell him some of my experiences on the CentralCoast and with Eric Worral.
Are you able to pass this email on to John for me?
We are glad you are enjoying John’s fascinating book. Unfortunately, we are unable to pass on the message to him, but you may be able to speak to the organisers of this event regarding reaching out to him. Their email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best,
