This is a joint Family History Connections and PMI Victorian History Library event. If family history, a love of research and discovery is your thing, do come along. Hear about a story of an ordinary family's journey from frontier warfare and dispossession through economic turmoil and emigration to modest prosperity. At each step, we are led to reflect on the puzzles of personal identity and the mystery of time. Based on a lifetime of creative scholarship, My Grandfather's Clock is a moving testament to the power of family history to illuminate the present. Graeme Davison is Emeritus Sir John Monash Professor of History at Monash University. He has written widely on Australian history. His previous family history, Lost Relations: Fortunes of My Family in Australia's Golden Age, won a Judges’ Special Prize in the Victorian Community History Awards. Graeme will sell and sign books on the day. Bookings essential with a gold coin for entry.
