Remembering Charmian Clift : Nadia Wheatley and Panel

06/07/2019 @ 02:30 PM – 03:30 PM Kiama NSW

The Friends of Kiama Library, the Kiama and District Historical Society and Kiama Library are commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Charmian Clift - one of Kiama's, and indeed Australia's, most legendary writers - with a talk presented by Charmian's biographer, Nadia Wheatley, followed by a discussion panel featuring commentators Richard Walsh, Graham Tucker and Boni Maywald.  Charmian Clift was a unique Australian talent – a naturally gifted writer with incredible charm, she rose from a working-class background to become a much-loved writer in Australia and abroad. Born in Kiama in 1923, Charmian went on to become a prize-winning travel and fiction writer, literary collaborator with her husband George Johnston, and one of the most influential newspaper columnists in Australia in the 1960s, shaping the opinions of thousands of readers. When she died, many felt as though they had lost a personal friend.  Our speaker, Nadia Wheatley, is herself a prolific and successful Australian writer whose work includes novels, biographies, histories and also children's books. Her biography The Life and Myth of Charmian Clift was described by one critic as 'one of the greatest Australian biographies' and won the NSW Premier's Award for Australian History. Our esteemed panel commentators will add their own insights from their personal experiences and deep interest in various aspects of Charmian’s life.  The event will be held at Kiama Library on Saturday 6 July at 2.30 pm. Tickets are $10, which includes a light afternoon tea and free entry to the museum exhibition at the Pilot's Cottage throughout the weekend, which has an excellent display recording her life and work. The Library will also be launching its new ‘Remembering Charmian Clift’ self-guided walking tour app at the event, which highlight locations around Kiama that influenced her work and played an important role in Charmian’s life.  For more information, visit our website www.kiama.nsw.gov.au/library or call us on (02) 4233 1133.

Under the Southern Sky Exhibition

22/07/2019 - 04/08/2019 @ From 10:00 AM Gerringong NSW

Artwork by Nathan Miller ‘Under The Southern Sky’ is an exhibition of photographs of landscapes and seascapes from coastal NSW, taken between dusk and dawn. To me, these moments have always been timeless and have inspired me to capture these brief moments of magic. Planning of an image starts with an idea, place, time or impression. This helps me capture the mood and essence of the image. I have always thought of the lens as a brush to capture the structure of an image and developing the images with editing software as my palette to bring out the colours as I see them and give the image life. I have chosen to print these images on aluminium to intensify the vibrancy and fluidity of my photographs. 10am-5pm Monday-Friday 10am-4pm Saturday-Sunday
