‘Recollections’, the South Coast’s free history magazine, usually includes one or more reviews of new Australian histories.
The August-September issue is no exception, with four histories being featured. Three of these are local histories.
This August-September issue of ‘Recollections’ is being officially launched at a ‘Talking History’ morning tea at 10.30am on Thursday 1st August at Moruya Library. Very appropriately, the theme will be ‘Fabulous Histories, Forgettable Histories’.
South Coast History Society President Peter Lacey will kick off proceedings by recalling the Australian histories that he has most enjoyed reading…and those he felt were far less interesting – and, in some cases, were binned before he reached the end of them!
Those attending this free morning tea will then be invited to share details about histories they have particularly liked and those that have left them unimpressed.
“By the end of the morning we are hoping to have compiled a list of ‘must read that’ histories, as recommended by the local community,” Peter said.
“Anyone interested is invited to join us at Moruya Library on August 1st, but we ask they contact Moruya Library in advance on 4474 1333 to ensure we provide enough seats and enough morning tea for everyone.”
The August-September issue of ‘Recollections’ should be available from all the usual distributors (including all Eurobodalla and Bega Valley library branches) from August 1st. It is also available online at www.bit.ly/Recollections15
