Our Guest Speaker this year is noted writer and literary critic, Evelyn Juers, who is also co-publisher of the literary magazine, HEAT and the Giramondo Publishing. Her book, The House of Exile: the life and times of Heinrich Mann and Nelly Kroeger-Mann, was shortlisted for this year’s Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards and Prime Minister’s Literary Awards for non-fiction.

Evelyn Juers’ research for her forthcoming book led her to Mornington in search of information on on Mornington’s own Hans Lindau, a Botanist who was interred in England and sent to Australia on the internee ship, the Dunera. We are delighted that Evelyn is to talk to us about this most remarkable man and the part he will play in her new book.
