A reminder that Susan Boyer will be our guest speaker on Saturday, 2nd June at 1:30 for 2:00 pm sharp. Through her book, “Across the Great Divide”, she has brought to life the diverse personal experiences of people living in and around Australia’s first colony. She demonstrates the varied reactions of participants to their unique situation, such as Esther Abrahams and Ann Inett, and their relationships with military men.
She relates the experiences of convict men who saw and seized the possibilities of their new position. Some succeeded, some failed disastrously.
These talks are open to anyone who would like to attend. Following the talk you are invited to join us for light refreshments and a chance to chat with the speaker and look around the museum. See the poster under “Guest Speakers” in side column for full details. Please feel free to forward it on to anyone you think might be interested.
