Sydney: Join Evelyn Conlon, Irish novelist, sharing her story under a different sky

6 April 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


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. The book was launched at the International Famine Commemoration hosted by us in Sydney in 2013. This will be a wonderful chance to hear what inspired her to write this novel. There will be an opportunity to buy the book and have Evelyn sign it.

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.

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