This weekend we are lucky to be celebrating the centenary of the birth of Sylvia Ashton-Warner with a conference at the Faculty of Education. During the conference the Library will be running an audio visual programme which includes the movie Sylvia, based on her early life. There is also a documentary made by Endeavour Pictures in the mid 1970s and a Kaleidoscope interview with Angela D'Audney recorded in 1979.
Keynote speakers will include Elliot Henderson (Sylvia's son) who was interviewed by Kim Hill on 2nd August, and Bob Gottlieb who played a crucial role in bringing Spinster and Teacher to North American audiences. Bob will be interviewed by CK Stead on a live video link from New York.
Details on how to register are available from the conference website.
