Linn event001Friday, November 21, 2014

7:00 pm to 10pm

Bring your family and friends, and join us for our last event of the year – a not to be missed evening featuring highly respected author and historian Rob Linn talking about a grand South Australian tradition and the organisation behind it.

From his earliest years, Rob has had a fascination  with rural Australia and its people. Much of his youth was spent on farming and station properties and he has retained that link and interest in the land. The author of numerous books about South Australia and its history, Rob has also been a councillor of the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of SA for more than 20 years.

In his most recent book,  “Sharing the Good Earth – 175 Years of Influence and Vision”, Rob has compiled a fascinating history of the society and the Adelaide show, drawing from the organisation’s own vast archives.

Special displays of material from the archives will be featured at the event. There will even be a raffle – for a show bag full of goodies.

Venue: Coventry Library 63 Mt Barker Rd, Stirling

Entry $10 per head

The Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society is based in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia. The Society provides access to a wealth of information about the history of the area through its Local and Garden History Centre in Stirling.

Uniquely, the History Centre brings together the history of local people and the remarkable gardens which influenced the development of this region.

It is located in the new Conventry Library, an award-winning building and the hub of the local community, attracting more than 2000 visitors a day.

The History Centre opened in 2008 thanks to the help of an Australian Government grant under the Regional Partnerships Program, the Adelaide Hills Council and several generous benefactors. It features a public display and research area, with freely available research materials, and a large functional workroom and store room which houses the Society’s collection.

Volunteers are available to assist people with inquiries between 2pm and 4 pm on days the Library is open. So come and visit us, and learn more about this fascinating corner of South Australia and its remarkable history.
