Evelyn Conlan - Great Irish Famine Commemoration Fundraiser

  • History House 133 Macquarie Street Sydney, NSW, 2000 Australia (map)

We are very excited to have Irish novelist, Evelyn Conlon, talk to us about her novel Not the Same Sky which she based on the experiences of a Famine workhouse emigrant girl. This will be a wonderful chance to hear what inspired her to write this novel.  Finger food and drinks will be served throughout the evening and we will be selling raffle tickets and the winners of our Grand Draw prizes will be announced that evening.

The event is our 2nd fundraiser for our Famine Refugee Scholarship to support a student who arrived in Australia as a refugee.
