In August last year, the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts was pleased to open the Tom Keneally Centre on level 3. The Centre was officially launched by Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, Governor of New South Wales on 18th of August. There were a number of events for members and the public to celebrate, including a public lecture by Tom Keneally.
Since then, we have hosted a variety of well-known authors in the Tom Keneally Centre for readings and talks in a very intimate setting, including Frank Moorehouse, Steven Sewell and Dennis O’Keefe.
We are delighted to be able to celebrate the one year anniversary with an anniversary lecture by Tom Keneally in the Mitchell Theatre. Please join us for this very special event, which we hope will become an annual feature of our calendar.
