NADIA WHEATLEY - HER MOTHER'S DAUGHTER: A MEMOIR

The High Ground, Geelong Library and Heritage CentreThursday, 30 May 2019 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

 

Nadia Wheatley’s biography The Life and Myth of Charmian Clift was The Age Book of the Year (Non-Fiction) and is the only biography to have won the Australian History Prize, NSW Premier’s History Awards. Born in Australia in 1949, Nadia grew up caught in the parental crossfire between an independent woman and a controlling man. After her mother’s death, she began writing the stories her mother had told her of her childhood and her life. Some fifty years later, the finished memoir is not only a loving tribute, but an investigation into the process of memory itself.
